15 April 2021 Current Affairs:A study conducted by the Wildlife Research Institute of India and other institutions found that the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary is the main habitat for elephants and tigers and also has a large number of black holes. The new genetic method estimates that the refuge has nearly 50 holes.

Asiatic Wild Dog:
♦ This species is similar in appearance to domestic dogs and is also known as Dhole. It is characterized by a distinctive red coat and a bushy tail with a black pointed tip. They are social carnivores living among 3 to 38 adult members. They are usually found in deciduous, evergreen and alpine grasslands.
♦ They are recognized as wooden whistles because they cannot bark or howl. There were creepy whistles between them. They also use various other noises, including percussive sounds and sharp screams not normally seen in canids.
♦ There are only less than 3,000 adult animals left in the wild. India may have the most wild ducks. These wild ducks are widely distributed in the three major landscapes of the Western Ghats, central India and northeastern India.
♦ This species is listed in Schedule 1 of the "Indian Wildlife Protection Act" (1972), and is listed as an endangered species in the Red Endangered Species List of the "IUCN".
♦ Due to human dominance, the excessive loss of habitat and the reduction of prey bases have affected their populations to a large extent.
The Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary in Kerala is adjacent to the Nagarhole and Kadinad Bundipur sanctuaries in Karnataka in the northeast, and Muduma in Tamil Nadu in the southeast. Lai is adjacent. It is part of the Nilgiri Biosphere ♦ Reserve. Forest types include humid deciduous forests of South India, semi-evergreen forests on the west coast, and plantations of teak, eucalyptus, and Grevelia. This is the home of elephants and tigers.
