Wildlife Diversity in the Punjab (Pakistan)

M. Anwar Maan and A. Aleem Chaudhry

The results of the study indicated that irrigated forest plantations are rich in wildlife diversity as compared to sub-mountainous tract. Changa Manga Wildlife Sanctuary was highly diversified with 74 wildlife species. In Kundian (WS) 65 species were identified. In Cheechawatni (WS) and Lal Suhanra (NP) 60 and 58 species were observed respectively. Only 35 species were observed in Shorkot (WS). In sub-mountainous tract, 38 species were observed in Kala Chitta Game Reserve, Attock and 33 in Kathar (GR). Variety of insect species were also noted during the study. Forestry operations, grass-cutting, kana stubbing and livestock grazing were major threats to wildlife. Forestry operations with the objective of wildlife management will be helpful for the conservation of diversified fauna.
