About the Animal Corridor:
♦ Wildlife or animal corridors are supposed to make certain secure passage for animals between two remoted habitats. In flora and fauna parlance, corridors are normally of two types: functional and structural. 
♦ Functional corridors are described in phrases of performance from the point of view of the animal (basically areas where there has been recorded movement of wildlife).
♦ Structural corridors are contiguous strips of forested areas and structurally connect the otherwise fragmented blocks of the landscape.
♦ When structural corridors are affected by means of human anthropogenic activities, practical corridors routinely widen because of animal use.
♦ In 2019, the National Tiger Conservation Authority in collaboration with the Wildlife Institute of India published a document, mapping out 32 foremost corridors across the country, administration interventions for which are operationalised via a Tiger Conservation Plan.
♦ The states are required to publish a Tiger Conservation Plan under area 38V of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972.
♦ Other Protected Areas in Rajasthan: Desert National Park, Jaisalmer; Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur; Sajjangarh flora and fauna sanctuary, Udaipur; National Chambal Sanctuary (on tri-junction of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh).
♦ IUCN List: Endangered.
Project Tiger: The project is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme of the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change launched in 1973 to furnish central help to the tiger States for tiger conservation in specified tiger reserves in India. The project is administered through the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA).
