Would you believe us if we said that a place existed in India as lush, beautiful, and teeming with wildlife as the Amazon? More than 100 million years old, it’s called the Western Ghats. Filled with mountains that run for almost 1,000 miles along India’s west coast, The Ghats contain one third of the country’s species. These wild creatures make their homes in its snowy peaks, tropical rainforests, grasslands, meadows, and wetlands.
Many have never been seen before. From ancient trees to dancing frogs to elephants, a vast number are evolutionarily distinct and globally endangered (EDGE). Our YouTube miniseries and mobile games give everyone a chance to experience the Western Ghats and its incredible diversity. By shining a spotlight on it, we hope to conserve this truly wondrous EDGE Zone.
