It is time to cheer for nature lovers with mankind destroying the natural habitat of the wild animals, forest restorations and reserved wild life sanctuaries have also helped to grow the population of the wild animals.
The forest department has kept trap cameras at various locations and the results are amazing. A rare species of Black panther has been sighted along with the majestic tiger, wild dogs, bears, bisons, wild boar and more.
The Forest department this time had built water tanks in deep woods due to which the animal human conflict due to want of water has been reduced this year.
These cameras were installed in 2012 and they help to track poachers as well and give round the clock movement of the animals.
The Khanapur Jungles along with the Bhimgad life sanctuary is becoming a dream home for these animals and the work of preservation done by the forest department in this area is commendable.
