Meet Nanhi the Indian Giant Squirrel, the official mascot for Satpura Tiger Reserve. Nanhi here, is seen endorsing a butterfly-watching event being hosted by the park from the 8th to the 10th of September 2017. (Registrations here).
The Satpuras, a biogeographical marvel, are a connecting link between the Western Ghats and the eastern Himalayas, and host a splendid array of wildlife unique to Central India. With a stunning diversity of butterflies (and also frogs and birds), this event is sure to pack a punch!
A big thanks to Mr. Anil Nagar, Field Director of the reserve, and the forest department of Madhya Pradesh for commissioning me for the mascot.
