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.

Dandeli Wildlife Division officially gets new buffer area :
Its official now.The new Buffer area which was declared for Dandeli Tiger Reserve with 282.63 Sq.km is officially handed over to Dandeli Wildlife Division by Karwar DCF as per the instructions given by Canara circle Conservator of Forests.
The detailed description of the New Buffer area of Dandeli – Anshi Tiger Reserve
Sl.No Description Extent ( In Sq. Kms.)
1 Kadra Range (Additional area to Anshi National Park) 77.48
2 Ulvi (Anshi Range) 29.62
3 Joida Range (Additional area to Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary ) 163.33
4 Bommanalli Tank (Virnoli Range) 12.20
TOTAL 282.63 Sq.Kms
Now we can expect a healthy population of Prey-Predator Density especially in Joyda Range which is rich in grassland and has the prey density potentially higher than Kulgi and Phansoli Ranges.And one more important thing is to notice that the areas mentioned above were severely suffering from poaching activities.So now as a part of Tiger Project we may hope in reduction of poaching activities in these areas.
