Nilgiri Tahr Births On In Eravikulam National Park

This year's birth season for the highly endangered Nilgiri Tahr has started in Eravikulam National Park near Munnar,Kerala,India.The park will remain closed to visitors till March 15th to minimise disturbances.Core areas are absolutely taboo to even forest officials. Nearly half the world's wild population of Nilgiri Tahr lives in Eravikulam. The Forest and Wildlife Department of Kerala which takes great pride in protecting the animal is bestowing extra care to look after the welfare of this endangered denizen of Eravikulam
