Endemics of Andaman (South Andaman, Little Andaman Island)

Dates: 5th–12th February 2022(FULL)

Dates: Batch 2: 12th - 19th February 2022

In the blue waters of the Bay of Bengal, east of mainland India is an archipelago of islands – the Andaman Islands. The Andaman group is famous for its endemic flora and fauna, which is why it is called the island of endemism. The islands have a heavy forest cover (over 85% of the area) and are a treat for nature lovers and enthusiasts. During the camp, we visit the main island of Andaman as well as Little Andaman to see endemics like Andaman Teal, Andaman Serpent Eagle, Andaman Crake, Andaman Coucal, to name a few. Other birds like Black Baza, Pied Imperial Pigeon, Collared Kingfisher and Blue-eared Kingfisher may also be seen.
