Prime Intention of the Blog
"People without children would face a hopeless future; a country without trees and wildlife is almost as helpless".
I still remember my childhood days when I used to visit Dandeli a place where even my father started his professional career and also where my most of the relatives were staying.Even though I never brought up in Dandeli no one could stop me to go there since it was just two hours journey from my native. And during every visit I used to get the scoldings from my father and relatives since I used to spend most of the time in forests than in house.So as I grown up my visit to Dandeli became very less except twice or thrice in a year since I became busy with studies but always I had in my mind that I should contribute something to these magnificent forests which inspired me a lot to fall in love with the Conservation.So it is just an attempt from my side to create awareness to save these magnificent animals and landscapes they exist in.If this blog contributes in a small way to achieve this goal I will be the most happiest person in this world.
This blog mainly focuses towards conservation activities in and around Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve.This blog doesn't provide any information regarding tourism and its related activities in and around Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve.

Illegal Activities in Mandurli IB disturbs wildlife
A well equipped Inspection Bungalow which was built in the late 1860s to facilitate the British Officials at Mandurli is becoming a threat for wildlife in Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve.Popularly known as Mandurli IB in Phansoli Wildlife Range which forms the core part of the Tiger Reserve is becoming a tourist spot.According to the National Tiger Conservation Authority Guidelines,the core areas should be kept completely inviolate from human activities unless there are any traditional forest dwellers.But this case is completely terrifying since all the political party meetings and other activities are being held in this area which is strictly not allowed.It is also important to know that Bollywood Star Sanjay Dutt was caught for poaching a spotted deer in the same forest and it was told that he stayed in the same bungalow which also indicates that poaching activities are still happening.Hence there is a strong appeal from the public to the Dandeli Wildlife Division officials to stop all such activities immediately in order to save the wildlife.
