The spectacular revival of the ecosystem in this region saw 150 acre of non-agricultural fallow land being developed into an open scrub forest which also serves as a botanical reserve for conservation of local strains of indigenous flora of Mithapur region.
The exclusive 40 acre set aside for the endangered Gugal (Commiphora wightii) species is thriving and incredibly beneficial as the resin of this plant is highly
sought after for its medicinal properties.
A total of over 145 flora species have been recorded on site
The bird species recorded here has more than doubled (40 at the time of initiation of the project in 2004, to 105 now) and 20 wild animal species including 9 species of reptiles have been recorded here. The returning wildlife include 11 species of raptors, some of which are endangered, reptiles including monitor lizards, cobras and saw-scaled vipers, a host of insects drawn by the flourishing grasses as well as hares, hedgehogs, mongooses, civets, jackals and hyenas. A herd of Nilgai have taken up permanent residence in the area and several endangered fauna species too have made it their home, including the Star Backed Tortoise, Eurasian Marsh Harrier, Indian Pangolin and Macqueen's Bustard. Rare sightings of the elusive leopard has been recorded and the Barn Owl and Spotted Owlet have made a comeback after 30 years!
