About this book

A compact book that provides useful information on a rich biodiversity section of the Western Ghats in Goa that is little known and even less appreciated.

Having grown up in Mapusa, Goa, Kulkarni’s love for and comfort with the environment he writes about is palpable. An ecologist of good standing, he is also an excellent photographer. It is this combination of pen and camera that India needs if it is to bring remote places alive so that public opinion can protect them from the retinue of miners, dam builders and sundry developers and their camp-followers in state administrations and politics.

The book describes and illustrates species including cobras, pit vipers, weaver ants, Sri Lankan Frogmouths, crocodiles, slender lorises and olive Ridley turtles.
