Tiger numbers in such areas as Nagarahole and Bandipur have reached their ecological carrying capacity without any corresponding increase in protected areas for both tiger and prey populations.
Scientists have been working in estimating leopard cat densities in the Western Ghats of India. Leopard cats apear to prefer secondary forests or tea plantations where many rodents live, while densities are lower in areas with strong populations of tigers and leopards. http://www.mid-day.com/articles/karnataka-scientists-estimating-leopard-cat-population-in-western-ghats/16325184
Going ahead with my series of trip reports, I have finally finished the final installment as well. Ganeshgudi was my last destination and I had a great time there. Anyone who is loves birding, should visit the area. I seriously hope that OMH retains its old world charm and does not give in to pressure of "renovation", its great the way it is. The last and final installment of the report can be found at: http://wildwildindia.com/ganeshgudi-armchair-birding-contd/ I hope you enjoy reading it. I sure had fun writing and reliving the trip. Cheers, Kartik
Going ahead with my trip, I have started the writeup for the last leg of the trip. Ganeshgudi OMH was my final destination and I spent about 5 days there. While it will be foolish to try and capture beauty of this place in words and pictures, I have made some feeble attempts at that. The trip report can be found at: http://wildwildindia.com/?p=553 Looking forward to hear from you guys. Cheers, Kartik
Continuing from where I left off let me share the next part of my journey with you guys again. I apologize for a long post in advance, this part of TR has more pictures (if someone minds them that is). It took me sometime to write due to mundane things like work emergencies etc, but I got there. The trip report can be found at: http://wildwildindia.com/?p=483 Please give a minute or five to let your browser load all images when you visit the site. Next part will be Ganeshgudi.. hope to write that one soon(ish).. Look forward to hear from you.. Cheers
