Kaziranga-Karbi Anglong Landscape

The Kaziranga-Karbi Anglong Landscape (KKL) is a vital site situated within the Indo-Burma Biodiversity Hotspot.
Geographically, the landscape primarily covers areas south of the Brahmaputra river in Assam touching the neighbouring states of Meghalaya and Nagaland in North-East India. The vision for this landscape is to ensure safe passage of large mammals - Asian elephant, Indian rhinoceros and tiger between different wildlife habitats.

Kaziranga National Park, the biggest PA in this landscape is connected with rest of the landscape through two corridors, namely Panbari and Kanchanjhuri, which are relatively degraded. This landscape also has a population of about 2500 elephants - about half of Assam’s elephant population and about 40% of the Assam’s tigers. In addition, this landscape boasts more than 2000 rhinos, comprising close to 90% of rhino population of India. This makes the area critical for protection and conservation of wildlife and their habitats. The region is also endowed with rich ethnic diversity.

The diverse cultural and traditional practices among the ethnic tribes and other communities contribute to a complex demographic structure throughout the landscape.
