IDUKKI WILDLIFE SANCTUARY
Idukki, once covered with some of the densest evergreen forests
in India, has now been seriously denuded as a result of the construction
of the Idukki dam in the 60's. Subsequently, a small sanctuary came
up, extending over the Thodupuzha and Udumpanchola taluks of Idukki
district and spreading over 77sq km at 450 - 748m above sea level.
The Idukki reservoir formed by three dams-Cheruthoni, Idukki and
Kulamavu - extending up to 33 sq. kms - forms part of this sanctuary.
Elephants, Bison, Sambhar, Deer, Wild dogs, Jungle cats, Tiger,
Wild boar etc are found here, as also Jungle fowl, Myna, Laughing
thrush, Black bulbul, Peafowl, Wood pecker and the King fisher.
