Mudumalai is biologically rich with a wealth of plant and animal life.
Increasing human numbers and current patterns of non-timber forest
product, fodder and fuelwood extraction threaten the integrity of the
ecosystem. Change in management of the protected areas that include the
Mudumalai region is needed. In particular, policies relating to grazing
and basic energy requirements need to be reexamined. At the same time,
mechanisms must be developed to increase rural incomes using means other
than exploitation of natural resources.
