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.

Anshi-Kumbarvada Road Project Dropped by KSHIP
Due to Environmental Issues Karnataka State Highways Improvement Project(KSHIP) has dropped Road Improvement of State Highway No 95 Khanapur-Sadashivgad from Anshi-Kumbarvada.Since this road passes through Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve,Permission from Ministry of Environment and Forests(MoEF) is a must.Environmentalists had protested that by road development vehicular movements will increase which undoubtedly will cause disturbances to wild animals and chances of road kill of animals are more.
But however this decision is strongly questioned by local people since SH 95 is the one and only way which connects Belgaum and Karwar district.People are telling that the road condition is too worst and due to this none of the vehicles are passing through the road.As a result lot of students are not able to go to schools at the time and missing facilities such as health and good transportation.
