The Periyar Inheritance

Bittu Sahgal (Author) Anish Andheria (Author)
Synopsis The Periyar Tiger Reserve is one of India's most inspirational wildlife success stories. Protected for more than a century by far-sighted people who saw the connection between the health of a large dam built across the Periyar River, and the forests that cloak its catchment area, this wildlife haven is now a shining example of the benefits that flow beyond boundaries when nature is allowed to manage itself, with minimal interference from humans. Declared a reserve forest in the late 19 century, a wildlife sanctuary in the 1930s and a Tiger Reserve in 1977, Periyar is a Land of Emerald Vistas, studded with exuberant colours and staggering species diversity. Productive grasslands, orchid-studded rainforests, moss-laden trees and dripping ferns provide food and shelter to insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals that together help maintain this valuable carbon sink in whose Canopy Great Hornbills, Lion-tailed Macaques, Nilgiri Langurs and giant squirrels can be seen with relative ease. This book highlights the value of this natural treasure and demands that our generation hands over the Periyar inheritance in pristine condition to our children - the rightful heirs to this unique wonderland.
