Feedback on Naturalist Program at Shahanur, Melghat Tiger Reserve

I liked the safaris that best. I had a chance to see wild Gaur, spotted deer, barking deer, Sambhar. The night safari was the best. I saw for the first time white napoed hare, civet cat, sloth bear, jungle cat, porcupine and wild dogs. I also liked the sessions explaining the use of camera traps and drones. I enjoyed when it was my turn to use the drone! I also liked identifying the pug marks of sloth bear and jungle cat. And one of the highlights was doing Zorbing on the lawns on the last day. It helped me overcome my fear.

The programme was very good. I really liked the interactions with all the instructors, specially Adwait Keole, Dr Bangde, the veterinarian, rfo, DCF and PCCF. They were very informative. The experience and exposure to the local climate, conditions, endemic species, their habitat was really special. I got to learn about salt licks, identifying pug marks. The safaris were excellent. I was happy to sight the jungle cat for the first time. The opportunity to photograph all the local species was also good. I have used camera traps before. But I really enjoyed going through the camera trap images and discovering a huge leopard captured early morning during his round to the watering hole! I also enjoyed handling the drone and learning how to use it for the first time.

I was accompanying my children who were enrolled for the naturalist programme and therefore was a participant as their guardian. I thoroughly enjoyed it. We have been to many wildlife Sanctuaries on camps as part of the Kids for Tigers Programmes so the set up was familiar. The sessions were excellent. I loved all the interactions with experts and representatives of the Forest department. The PCCF R Srinivasa Reddy was unable to meet us personally but we had an interaction over the internet/phone. This made a difference as it demonstrated that the organizers and instructors were truly involved to disseminate knowledge, expertise and share their experience with all the young enthusiastic students/participants. I particularly liked the camera trap and drone demos and the fact that each participant was allowed to handle and understand its use. The safaris were the high light of the trip as we sighted many endemic species in their natural habitat. Learning to identify pugmarks on the trails was also very useful.

"The program was very well structured and all stay and transfer arrangements were very good. The behavior, attitude and humbleness of the forest staff along with various NGO staff was the best part of the Programme.They were all very helpful and went out of their way.
All in all amazing programme. The first of a kind attended by me.
Having attended this I would like to suggest that forest department should organize more such programs at a higher level. Field patrolling with forest guard could also be a part of the programme. Many thanks Indian wildlife club through which I came to know about the program."

Bhitarkanika: Nature’s Paradise in Odisha

After fulfilling months of hard work, one definitely wants to take rest away from the din and bustle of city enjoying the beauty of nature in a serene atmosphere.


Bhitarkanika with its lush green mangroves, the fiery crocodiles, migrating birds and turtles, water tracks, the ever beautiful nature surely invites the visitors from all walks of life to spend time leisurely as well as think and explore the beauty of nature. Represented by the 3 protected areas “The Bhitarkanika National Park”, The Bhitarkanika Wildlife Sanctuary” and “The Gahirmatha Marine Sanctuary”, it is always a place for nature lovers, scholars, scientists and tourists.


Located in Odisha’s Kendrapara district, Bhitarkanika is surrounded with Mangrove Forests criss-crossed with streams and mud planes. In 1975 Bhitarkanika Wildlife Sanctuary (BKWS) was established to conserve the rich biodiversity and the pristine beauty in the Brahmani-Baitarani (Dhamra) deltaic region of coastal Odisha. Later the Sanctuary was designated as Bhitarkanika National Park in the year 1988. Yet again in the year 2002 it was re-designated as the Ramsar site or The Wetland of International importance. Even steps are being taken to include it in the World Heritage Site List.


Bhitarkanika river system has few giant saltwater crocodiles. The length of these crocodiles is around 20ft. The nesting behavior of mother Saltwater crocodile is different from other two Indian Crocodilian species. She builds up a small mountain in a secluded place by collecting available nesting material which includes aquatic fern species (Acrostischum aureum), Hental (Phonix paludosa), etc. Then the nesting mother crocodile actively guards her nests for about 70-75 days, till the young crocodiles hatch out for moving into the creeks. The un-disturbed river bank is the favoured basking spot for Saltwater crocodiles. An abode for the highly poisonous snake, King Cobra, Bhitarkanika is one of the few


Bhitarkanika mangrove forests provide an abode for the deadly poisonous snake, King cobra. This is one of the few locales in the country where a good population of King cobras are seen.


With Monsoon water birds flock Bagagahan, a place closer to the famous Sujhajore creek. It is an amazing view to observe 50,000 birds including the new ones chirping and flying.

Then, one needs to steal his view for the rare spotted deer’s who have got adjusted to the climatic prevailing conditions of this ecosystem. With a increase in their population they can be found around the Crocodile Research Centre at Dangmal as well as along the river banks.

The best times to see these spotted deer’s are either in the morning or in during sunset along the river banks. Though few of them can also be seen the FRH at Dangmal during night hours.

Greenwoods Nature Camp - Truly a camp within Nature

Posted by Sam on February 27, 2015

Forum Post
Greenwoods Nature Camp (  is located in the boundary of Mudumalai Tiger Reserve Forest. The backyard of the camp is the forest and is situated in a tribal hamlet. 
The camp is eco friendly and provides clean facilities with nice food. (homely).

There is a experienced guide who takes to the nature trails in the mornings and this a experience of lifetime. The staff and people in camp truly respect nature. There is also additional activities like private jeep safari to Mudumalai / Bandipur, barbaque and camp fire.

The camp is surrounded by lush greenery and is located in a rustic ambiance. Do not miss staying the European Tented Cottage which is a customized tent (feels like a room from inside and has attached toilet).

The nature and wildlife lovers would appreciate that loud music / alcohols are not allowed in the camp as this would disturb the wildlife. 

This place is truly for nature and wildlife lovers who respect and appreciate nature. The staff's are very friendly and price is economical. (Greenwoods Nature Camp).

Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary, Gurgaon

Posted by Shashi Kant Sharma on January 27, 2013

Forum Post
Have been visiting the Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary since the late 70's. Today, the 27 January, 2013 we visited it again to spend some time birding in the company of some old colleagues and friends - all retired/semi-retired.
A much anticipated outing since this is the time for many migratories being seen at the sanctuary. Experienced mixed emotions - driving on roads much improved from the old times and getting to the Sanctuary in much less time than in the old times. We noticed how a new Manesar-Dwarka Expressway has resulted in miles and miles of lands being taken over by Colonizers, big and small. Drive to Sultanpur was almost entirely through an already congested/inhabited area. Gone was the romance of driving to the place on muddy roads, raising clouds of dust in the wake of my car as used to be the case in the 70's. Today it felt as if we were in Sultanpur, having hardly got out of the urbanised/much colonized area (an extension of old/new Gurgaon thanks to the Manesar-Dwarka Expressway). 
We were among large groups inside the Sanctuary itself as well and the parking place provided was choc-a-block with the latest models of cars. families inside the sanctuary wielded the latest DSLR cameras (one with each member of the family) .................In the 70's I recollected having gone to Sultanpur from Delhi and stayed in the tourist huts for a weekend...the experience was that of visiting a Sanctuary far from the madding crowd and stay in the hut was in sync with that feeling....................Today things have changed, smoother roads, flyovers providing access, lots of festive tents both sides of the roads (sales/marketing offices put up by Colonizers for prospective buyers).......... So did I expreience the quietitude and peace of old times while driving to the sanctuary or walking  around the lake inside. We did see many more birds and also a Cobra and took many photographs.......our mood fluctuated from happy, relaxed,  worrisome, 'happy-sad' not 'happy-happy' ...............the large groups were too noisy, the walking trail inside had too many plastic wrappers, visitors were all over the place. We remained in touch with the fear that as colonizers construct all the way to the gates of the sanctuary, will it survive? Number of birds coming will surely go down since the fields/trees and vegetation on both sides of the road has nearly disappeared already (with agricultural lands usage having been converted to urbanised area already) fewer trees/bushes for them to pearch on and more people engaged in the business of life----more vehicles, lots of electric lights, Mobile Towers.....Radiation...........
Given the pressure of numbers, will it renew and regenerate itself..Have my doubts.  Do we wish to eliminate the probability of our children/grand children having some place to experience Nature and Unspoilt Surroundings at their healthiest and least spoilt state of being......Of course there was plenty of water in the Lake, lots of birds were there but there was also an old/very ill-looking blue-bull. Did it pick up an infection something from the domestic cattle that were roaming around the Sanctuary in plenty. .................I continue to believe that we have to save some islands of peace and quietitude away from constructed areas ----merely designating an area a Sanctuary will not ensure that. We as a society will have to persuade ourselves to not monetise every inch of land that we see around us
