Officials have begun a wildlife survey in the Aravalli hills area on Thursday. Such a survey was last conducted in 2007.
“About 15 officials were deployed in Manger and Bhadkal areas of the Aravalli hills on Thursday for the survey,” Del Chand Sagar, a senior wildlife official, said. Transit and trailing lines are being carved in 10-15 sq km area for the survey, he said. “On Thursday, points were identified and painted on the specified transit and trailing line,” he said.
“As such a survey is not so easy, we resume our survey after a gap of one week after carving out transit and trailing lines,” the officials said. “On the transit line, atleast two persons will observe movement of animals. Pug marks of the animals on the trailing and transit lines will also be observed,” the official said.
The officials said that Aravalli hills area in Faridabad has been separated into three beats for the survey.
