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.

Human-Elephant Conflict on rise in DATR:
Once again elephants are on rise in Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve.Since last week they are repeatedly attacking agriculture fields in Diggi forests and caused a severe damage to crops.But the assurance given by wildlife division regarding compensation is not yet fulfilled which put farmers' life into big problem.They told that if the incident repeats villagers have to commit suicide and that is the only option left for us as crops are the only sources for their survival in the area.They also blamed wildlife division for their negligence which is repeatedly failing to take proper precautions to prevent crop damages.Villagers told that they have decided to sit protest in front of Wildlife Division DCF office until they get assurance for their crop loss compensation and lives.However DCF Mr.Sunil Panwar told that two guards will be assigned to send elephants away from the villages' territory and assured about the compensation.
