Key infrastructure supported by the NNFT includes a 26km elephants-proof fence that was installed
in early 1990s. The main projective was to alleviate human-wildlife conflicts that were the order of
the day during the period. The six strand-fence was later re-enforced with a 16km short prongs fence
that ensured tricky elephants do-not approach the main fence.
The trust supports a road network connecting the six villages that surround the forest. The roads are
also vital as firebreaks and accessibility ecotourism sites for forest visitors. We have 6 main gates
which are guarded on a 12-hour period, enabling data collection on all entries to the forest.
