Wildlife In Goa

The rugged Western Ghats make it an ideal haven for many species of birds and animals and also provide a corridor for migration. The Western Ghats called the Sahyadris in Goa extend for a total of 600kms in Goa of their total length of 3702 kms.

The widest belt of forests along the Western Ghats is in Goa and neighboring Karnataka state. The high rainfall accounts for this because the elevation of the mountain range here is lower.

The coastal areas on the other hand, provide the tropical backdrop. There are several plants and trees unique to Goa and some introduced by the Portuguese, most famous of which is the green Chilies, which today has become an essential ingredient in the Indian Curry.

The tropical location of Goa is responsible for its warm humid climate and laterite and lateritic Clayey-loamy soil. The mean temperature even in the coldest month is over 20 degrees centigrade.

The various Wildlife Sanctuaries in Goa are:-

Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary Goa, Bondla Forest Goa, Salim Ali Bird Sanctaury Goa, Catigo Wildlife Sanctuary Goa, The Mandovi Zuari Wildlife Century Goa.
