Bagdara Black Buck sanctuary -
Bagdara is strategically located between Bandhavgarh National Park and Varanasi, and with the coming up
of this camp will provide the much required link to the wildlife sector. The camp is being set up on an island
on the Son River famous for Crocodiles and Mahaseer.
Bagdara has a good population of Black Bucks, Nilgai, Sloth Bear, Wild Boar, Chinkara, Jackals, Leopards and
over 280 bird species. The area is under a lot of pressure from human encroachment and poaching. A wildlife
tourism project would encourage conservation and highlight the plight of the park.
This project is modeled around a conservation camp which will be built and managed by the villagers from the park.
Tourist influx will not only bring in the much needed fund generation but will also boost up the morale of the forest department.
It will offer 12 tents on a 50 acre private island.
