Following the success of leopard monitoring at Aarey Milk Colony, the Thane Forest (Territorial) department are starting a similar study on the eastern and western peripheries of the SGNP as well. Thanks to the continues monitoring of leopard activity at Aarey, the Forest Department was able to capture a leopard responsible for man-animal conflict last year.
