Amazing Wild Life in Kerala

Tour Kerala

:O As visitors to the state Tour Kerala, they are amazed by the variety of wildlife found in this tiny state. Nestled in the lush forests of the Western Ghats in Kerala are fourteen wildlife sanctuaries. And skirting these exotic destinations are some of the most delightful trails in the country, some of them adventurously exciting, others enchanting in equal measure. All washed in the spice-scented air of endless acres of plantations of tea, coffee, cardamom, vanilla, pepper, oranges and mangoes.
Established in 1997 the Agasthya Vanam Biological Park in Thiruvananthapuram is named after the magnificent Agasthyakoodam Peak looming at a distance. The park covers a total area of 23 square kilometers out of which 17.5 square kilometers are marked for natural regeneration, for the growth of vegetation and development of a thick jungle. The remaining area is to be used for manipulative programs of conservation.
This project was constituted by the government of India after a scientific review committee recommended the setting up of a biological reserve in the highly degraded forest area know as the Kottor Reserve. This park has been set up for the regeneration, conservation, and propagation of a variety of wild animals, birds and plants.
Though the area selected has negligible tree growth and wildlife, it has water sources in abundance and the soil is suitable for large-scale afforestation. :laugh:
