3. Complete restrictions of illegal tree logging inside DPF,

4. Restrictions in community made fire inside DPF,

5. Land encroachment etc.

MWT & FD Plans for Nature Trail inside Dhanushadham Protected Forest

After the successful completion of Nilghai survey , MWT & FD is planning to introduce a nature trail inside the DPF for the attraction of tourist and to pass the information about the youngest protected forest. During our last survey,  MWT scientific officer Mrs Lintumol P.K.  pointed the main cause for the disappearance of these Nilghais are overgrazing of cattles inside the core area of forest, which forces the Darwin’s law of ‘Survival of the fittest’. So MWT and FD is trying to check the grazing of those cattles inside the core area of the forest with the help and support of nearby community peoples to protect and increase the population of Nilghais of DPF.
