Post Airport, we all can cruise well together on the Srisailam Highway.

As far as I remember, Deepak mentioned that we start at 6.00 am here, so that we can reach there before breakfast.

Can he be of a help to us in helping us understand the Tiger Population and the decline in the same and other intrinsic details about the Fauna at Srisailam and sorrounding forests?

I have requested Mr. Rao to address the group. He's tied up with visitors from Delhi and hence may not be able to join us. He did mention he will try

The following is a summarised list of the wildlife at NSTR. Would be easier to read:

Wildlife at NSTR.xls

74 species of mammals and 303 species of birds !!

Ani, I am in a group of about 4-5 people, so car pooling sounds impossible. I am planning to hop into Rajesh's Scorpio when we meet, so that I would be with him in his Scorpio and all others in Santro.

Rajesh Bhai, 4-5 log ke liye jagah hogi aap ke gaadi mein?

With the support of Forest Department, I am expecting a sighting of either of the felines. Keeping fingers crossed.
