Wildlife Week 2021

Someshwara Wildlife Sanctuary

The role played by wildlife in maintaining the ecological balance of nature is undeniable. Any harm to the wilderness can pose a threat to the entire ecosystem. Thus, it is very crucial to preserve flora and fauna. Every year, from 2nd to 8th October, India celebrates Wildlife Week with an aim to protect the preserve country’s fauna. During this week, experts conduct workshops to make people understand the importance of wildlife conservation. Besides this, several awareness-building activities are organised on different levels to make people more aware about wildlife. India is a biological hotspot, supporting a number of animal species. With only 2.5% of the earth’s surface, India is home to over 7% of the world’s biodiversity. India’s faunal wealth is incredibly diverse, constituting around 7.4% of the world’s fauna.

But the rich wildlife brings with itself several threats as well. We are not unaware of the potential harms caused to these species for various reasons. It is thus necessary to play a part in this initiative. While all the States across the country take part, Karnataka has lent its support with utmost dedication. About 22.61% of Karnataka’s land is covered with dense forests, supporting a rich diversity of fauna. In fact, many of the fauna species found in the state are recognized as endangered or threatened species. That’s not it! 10% of the Tiger population and 25% of the Elephant population of India calls Karnataka home. There is a wide variety of Mammals, Reptiles, Insects, Birds, Amphibians, and Fishes as well. No wonder it is one of the wealthiest states in terms of wildlife and fauna species.
