WILDLIFE SURVEY OF RODAINI KACHO AREA

Executive Summary
The area has great potential due to their natural resources. The area esthetically and ecologically provides unique habitat. The climate is arid subtropical and mostly receivemonsoon shower during summer. The natural vegetation of the area consists of Sub-tropicalthorn forest in the form of dry grass, shrubs and trees Wildlife survey of Rodini Kacho Area wascarried out during the year 2005.
 
The area has an arid climate, but contains many species and habitats of global biodiversity significance In the present survey; ten species of Trees, TenSpecies of Shrubs and fifteen Species of herbs were observed. Local names, scientific name and  family of each species given. In the entire area; eighteen species of Mammals, thirty-two species of Avis, twenty sixspecies of reptiles, three species of Amphibians, four species of scorpion and four species of  Butterflies were seen. Conservation efforts have been limited, and not very effective in much of the area, though the Government sector and local communities have been effective to somedegrees in this regard. Still due to little resources to undertake conservation activities and lack of political will, the critical habitats continue to degrade and many species of global importancehave either become extinct or are critically endangered. Although conservation of arid ecosystems is essential to maintain an ecological balance and conserve biodiversity, these aregenerally considered ‘waste’ lands due to their limited productive potential. Therefore the Areahas received very little attention for conservation. Overgrazing, cutting of scanty vegetation for  fuel, indiscriminate hunting and trade in wild species are common practice and have caused large-scale environmental degradation and loss of biodiversity. If that was not enough, therecent persistent drought has taken toll of whatever was remaining
