Industrial mining operations

The OKKPS Landscape area is bisected by the railway line that will be used to transport minerals for export. The railway line passes through the heart of the priority area for the conservation of threatened species. Close collaboration with the mining operators is needed to establish an agreement of mitigation activities to reduce the negative impacts on biodiversity (deforestation, changes in watercourse regime, fragmentation of natural habitats, and disruption of corridor connectivity)
