Description

The Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary, This wonderful wildlife kingdom is located in Cancona region (Cancona Taluk),  10km from the City of Chaudi and Palolem Beach, The nearest town to Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary is Poinguinim which is situated 2 km from the main entrance to the Park.  Established in 1969, the Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary is situated at a distance of 60 kilometers from Panaji towards the south. It was established in the year 1969 to protect the vulnerable flora and fauna of that area. Cotigao sanctuary is the second largest sanctuary in Goa and covers an area of 86 square kilometers. The Talpona River flows all the way through this preserve. Cortigao National Park was primarily known for its ultra-high (30 meters!) trees with so much heavy cover, that sometimes do not even access the sunlight onto the earth surface. 18 meters moving stairways are given the bravest tourists the chance to climb up the high tree for watching breathtakingly beautiful sightseeing which stands before an eye from the top of trees. Though the forested land shelters a variety of birds and animals, the number of animals in this sanctuary has started to dwindle over the years.

One can still come across sloth bears, deer, wild boars, laughing hyenas, and Indian Bisons Indian fauna as Muridae deer, giant Indian flying squirrel, four-horn antelope, Lesser Grey Nuthatch, gaur (Indian bison), bison, Black Panther, porcupine, leopard, and many other animals,  Various reptiles and monkeys can also be easily sighted. Birds like the Rufus Woodpecker, white-eyed eagle, and the Malabar crested eagle constitute the avian life that thrives here. Apart from the animal life, the extensive forestland is welcomed as a pleasant change.  you will be required to arrange your own vehicle to visit the sanctuary, as the Forest Department provides no vehicles.
