Many species of plants, birds and mammals in Bhutan's 'biological corridor' face extinction, reveals a survey of the country's nature conservation division. The area termed as the 'biological corridor' comprises nine per cent of the country's total area. The survey conducted to 'operationalise' the corridor has found that the musk deer and tigers are threatened severely. The objective of the survey was to form a management plan that would ensure that different ecosystems in the country's national parks are managed in an integrated manner. The survey was funded by the Wildlife Fund Bhutan Programme.
