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.

Elephant Census brings cheers in Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve

The South Indian elephant census 2012 which was conducted from May 22-24 in Bandipur,Nagarhole,Bhadra,BRT,Kollegal,Dandeli,Mudumalai,Wayanad and other areas,was a happy moment for the volunteers and department staff.Since Bandipur,Nagarhole forest patches which have more than 4000 jumbos,sighting of elephants is not a surprise.But in the North Karnataka forests where the elephant population is very low, has brought some cheers to the volunteers and department staff since they had a direct sighting of 31 elephants in Dandeli Wildlife Division and Haliyal division(territorial).Sightings in Belgaum,Yellapur divisions are yet to be known.Surprisingly this time volunteers' number was very high and was especially from Bellary,Dharwad,Hubli,Belgaum etc.Dandeli's well known NGO Green Umbrella Eco Club has also helped forest staff in conducting the census.

These are some of the snaps of Elephant Census in Dandeli Wildlife and Haliyal Divisions:
