World Endangered Species Day 18th May 2018

Out of the 10,000 bird species that inhabit this world, around 2000 of them are migratory. The Indian subcontinent plays host to a number of migratory birds in summers as well as winters. It is estimated that over a hundred species of migratory birds fly to India, either in search of feeding grounds or to escape the severe winter of their native habitat.

Redefining The Idea Of The Wild

Author: Isheta Salgaocar

 

My love affair with the wild is likely the longest one I’ve ever had –beginning at age 3 – and possibly will ever have. As a frequent traveller to the Sabi Sands I had always thought that the sort of leopard viewings one is able to partake in at camps there were unparalleled. The close proximity to multiple different leopards and long sightings seemed unique to that area. Although each region and park have their USP, I’ve never been one to compare one wildlife experience to another, particularly because of my unshaken belief that in the wild you have to surrender yourself to the will of the wild and what you see is not in your control.

The White Peacock

Whomever you come across in India, be it on the shores of Chennai, or around the narrow alleys of Chandi Chowk, or even deep within the snow capped mountains of the Himalayas, all will be able to recognise the peacock. Partly to do with why the peafowl is the national bird of India is that they can be seen all over the country, their presence is unavoidable. At Jawai, it’s no different. every corner you turn, five run off to the concealment of the prosopis juliflora, every hill you climb, ten frantically flap their wings in frightful flight, every valley you traverse, the unmistakable shrill cry of twenty resonates through the scrub. In short, peafowl are ubiquitous throughout the area. Although their colours and plumage are majestically magnificent, it isn’t a huge surprise to come across one while out on our drives…. well, until now.

2017: Spectacular sightings right until the end.

Seeing a leopard is and will always be a momentous occasion for anybody who experiences JAWAI. Seeing two adult leopards together is such a rare occurrence that we all are left, sitting in the jeep, with an expression of total bewilderment. You can then imagine all our faces when on one granite outcrop we had witnessed three adult leopards together.
