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.

Road Construction to restart in Anshi National Park:What will be the impact on Wild animals?
Road construction from Anshi-Kumbarwada (19 kms)which was stopped due to Environmental Issues is restarted.Since the road passes through the Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve,the project was initially dropped by KSHIP because Supreme Court of India had give stay not to take construction as it may cause disturbance to the wild animals.But however afterwards there were many protests done by local people and forced local MLA and other representatives to improve the road condition.As a result of this construction in-charge has been transferred from KSHIP to PWD.As per the sources the construction will start within a week.
But however Environmentalists and forest department officials are not happy with this.Since Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve is a home for endangered wild species which are left in a few number.By this road construction vehicular movements will increase causing disturbance to wild animals.There are also chances of death of wild animals while crossing the road.
