Remnants of Karnataka's once grand wildlife are now concentrated in a few forest pockets in and around Western Ghats. The little known Bhadra wildlife sanctuary, is one such area, potentially superior to many of our better known wildlife habitats. It has many features which make it a priority area for conservation and environmental management. It is ironical that this area, which owes its uniqueness to an irrigation project, is now being threatened by ecologically ill-conceived developmental activities of rather dubious economic value.
