PHASE-I

Phase-I of the "Terai Plains of North India" project focussed on documenting the smaller mammals of the TAL. The project was carried out on the banks of Ramganga river on areas close to the Corbett Tiger Reserve. Five days of on-field photography was followed by over a month of setting up camera traps in the areas. The target species were Deers, Civets, Porcupines and Leopard Cats. The key species targeted was Leopard Cat. The camera trap was set-up over a narrow jungle by-lane that had evidence of high animal activity. Over the period of the month, with the help of our field assistant Mr. Raju Bhadola and naturalist Mr. Balvant Negi we were able to photograph Leopard Cats on four different occasions. A separate gallery below showcases the images of Leopard Cats we were able to get. Additionally, Small Indian Civet, Sambhar, Spotted Deer, Barking Deer and Khaleej Pheasants were documented. Sadly, we were unable to photograph Porcupines.

Phase-I began in the winter of 2022 and ended in January 2023.
