Wild Life Sanctuaries in Telangana state

Under the huge Forests in Telangana –  “Telangana Ku Harita Haram” greening initiative, the State Government plans to plant and safeguard 230 crore seedlings over four years. By involving a large number of community members in the process, Vana Samrakshna Samithis (VSS), Eco-Development Committees (EDCs) in Protected Areas, and Watershed Development Committees in Watershed areas, this initiative seeks to accomplish the dual goals of increasing the amount of forest cover and reducing constraints on the current forest resources.

The immense diversity of flora and fauna exists in the State of Telangana. The northern portion of the state, along the banks of the Godavari River, is covered with thick teak woods. 

In Telangana, teak (Tectona grandis) is no longer among the top five tree species. Teak is no longer listed among the top five species in the inventory due to the significant rise in timber tree species being felled. The State of Environment Report-TS, the most recent report supported by the Ministry of Environment, Forests, and Climate Changes, reveals this. In the state, the report was just released.
