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.

First camera trapped Tiger@Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve:

Tiger @ Dandeli
Please read the article below which has been published in IndianNaturewatch website.The image is of tiger captured in a camera trap in Feb 2008 on Kavala Road in Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve.
For the first time the KFD employed camera traps at Dandeli and the images have let out a feeling of high amongst the Dept. Firstly I should thank Dr.Andre Petit whose low end solutions to high tech applications in wildlife led me to procure some for the Dept and full credit to Manoj DCF, Dandeli to lead his team of staff in DWS with out 'expert' help to go through this, another thanks to Raghu, my young RFO who ventured out to get these contraptions and having faith in them and passing on what he had learnt to the frontline staff.Also to many others who supported this initiative.


  1. Lovely photograph..and congratulations for your achievement! The tiger is indeed a majestic creature--only the rarest of the times do we get lucky to spot it. And your photograph says it all....
