What are Wildlife Corridors?

Humans have increased their activities in the recent past leaving behind the remnants for the wildlife around. Activities like expanding agricultural fields, building new network of roads and rapid urbanization have shrunk the forest area and reduced the habitat of wildlife into small patches. This division of wildlife is often referred to as fragmentation.

Human-Wildlife Conflict

Humans and animals have co-existed for millions of years as harmony is the way of nature. But with advancements in society, economy and cultures we have parted our ways from it. Yet nature has its own rules, regulations and rhythms, and so many a times humans have to face grave dangers of the wild.

This is how you can prevent crop-raiding by a stray animal in Chandrapura, Maharashtra

Chandrapura, Maharashtra has a huge problem of Human-Animal Conflict where thousands of crop-raiding cases are getting reported annually. Apart from the traditional practices that farmers use to protect their crops from wild animal intrusion, there are not many technical solutions available to help them.

Existing methods like electric fences are no longer efficient in solving such conflicts hence this should be replaced by much smarter, safer and effective device called ANIDERS. This smart solution can protect the crops from wild animals without causing any harm to the wildlife.

It can protect the crops from animals like: Elephants, Nilgai, Wild Boar, Rabbits, Deer, Etc.

It can also protect the people living around forests from wild cats like: Tiger, Leopards, etc.

How ANIDERS works?

ANIDERS is one machine that works like an automatic scarecrow. It uses Infrared Sensors to detect any animal entering the farm and then it uses a light and sound alarm system to repel the detected animal away from the farmland.  Device is solar powered, hence does not need any power supply to charge its battery. It charges itself during the day and then works throughout night.

ANIDERS is robust and can be used in any kind of weather. Using ANIDERS is remarkably simple, there is no need to set up any electrical connection. It is an independent unit that can be installed anywhere in the farmland with access to sunlight.

It can replace the need of electric fence as it builds a virtual fence around the farmland instead of making a physical fence. It is safe for the farmers and for the wild animals as well.

This is what happened after the successful ANIDERS pilot project in ASSAM

Last year we were contacted by Selco Foundation regarding increasing crop raiding issues in Assam due to elephant intrusion. Assam being rich in biodiversity, has always been a zone with human wildlife conflicts. Every year at least 30-40 people in Assam lose their lives due to these conflicts and dozens of elephants are killed in retaliation. This conflict is going since decades and is increasing year after year due to decrease in forest cover.

The crop raiding problem faced by the village farmers was severe and needed urgent solution. The NGO bought 10 devices from us to do a pilot in high conflict zones. The pilot project was so successful that they placed an order of 80 devices the very next season. Extremely happy with the results, the farmers were ready to pay their share for the devices instead of just relying on the NGO for funds. The NGO and farmers had great things to say about their experience.

Quoting their feedback, “We installed ANIDERS along the river bank because elephant herds used to enter the farmlands after crossing the river. Once we installed ANIDERS, elephant herds tried to enter the farmlands, but they got scared and returned to jungle every time because of ANIDERS’s light and sound alarm.  Since the installation of this device, there has been no damage reported and the crops have been safe ever since.

Last year, farmers lost up to 4 bighas of paddy due to crop raiding by elephants.  But this year, after ANIDERS installation, his fields are not only safe, but he is also able to save Rs. 7000, which is a big deal for a small-scale farmer. On average these farmers are able to save Rs. 14,000 each.

Interestingly, ANIDERS is not only saving us from elephant intrusions but it is also protecting us from thieves. This area used to report theft during nighttime, but post ANIDERS installation, reported thefts have drastically reduced as ANIDERS triggers an alarm in case there is any intrusion detected.”

Feedbacks like these give us motivation to keep working towards our goals and make us believe that we are moving in the right direction. We, at Kyari Innovations, have took it upon ourselves to innovate more such innovative solutions to help the environment and people alike.

ELEPHANTS OF KISHANPUR, HALDWANI

A heard of Elephants was a cause of worry for the farmers of Kishanpur for past 6 months. The elephants were entering fields every night and were destroying the crops sown by the farmers. This lead to many sleepless nights for the farmers as they had to protect their fields from elephant intrusions overnight. Farmers incurred huge losses as the crop productivity declined drastically. Electric fences could be installed, but that would take months for approvals and huge installation costs would be required.

District Forest Officer of Haldwani Mr. Chandershekhar Sanwal approached us with this problem in January this year with very high hopes. It was time to prove ANIDERS’s worth in the hour of need. We quickly assembled 2 units of ANIDERS and started off for Haldwani the very next day.

As we talked to the villagers, we got to know how adverse the conditions had been the past few months. Elephants intruded there fields on daily basis and were now totally immune to the tricks that villagers once used to drive the elephants away.

After analyzing the landscape around the farms, we installed 2 units of ANIDERS, one on each pathway of elephants from where they entered the fields. As the device is easy to install and handle, we trained the villagers on how the device could be operated and fixed if needed. Range officer Mrs. Shalini Joshi and her team were really supportive throughout the process of installation.

As the devices were installed, we left for the day and waited for the night to settle in, when the movement of elephants would start.

After a week we got a call from the Pradhan of Kishanpur (Village head), he had excitement in his voice and gratitude in his words. He told us that no elephant dared to enter the field since ANIDERS’s installation. Whenever the elephants came towards the field, ANIDERS would drive them away by triggering the alarm system.

The problem that was troubling the farmers since 6 months vanished by the installation of just 2 devices. The villagers are highly satisfied by the results and wish to buy more units to secure the complete from wild animal’s intrusions.

The results were astonishing and this news spread quite fast. Local dailies covered this incident and wrote articles of triumph about ANIDERS. Amar Ujala, a leading newspaper daily in India, came forward and put down the story behind ANIDERS.
