‘From Killer Roads to Humane Highways’
Bengaluru: We are pleased to share with you a powerful conservation film titled, ‘From Killer Roads to Humane Highways’ directed by renowned filmmaker Shekar Dattatri.
The 17-minute film addresses the adverse impacts of roads and highways on wildlife and showcases some of the mitigation measures that countries must adopt to arrest the needless deaths of thousands of wild animals every year.
The goal of the film is to impress upon both decision makers and the general public that development and conservation can go hand in hand if nature is thoughtfully factored into the planning process.
This film was produced under the aegis of the Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) project titled “Landscape Connectivity in India” (https://snappartnership.net/teams/landscape-connectivity-in-india/) led by Dr. Krithi Karanth and Dr. Ullas Karanth from the Centre for Wildlife Studies in partnership with Dr. Ruth Defries from Columbia University. SNAPP supports projects that focus on solutions for global challenges to nature conservation, sustainable development, and human well-being.
The film was produced in the public interest by the Trust for Environmental Education with the support of Science for Nature and People Partnership, Centre for Wildlife Studies, Columbia University and Conservation India. A large number of wildlife and conservation photographers from all over India contributed their images to this project, and we are immensely grateful for their support.
