Satkosia Gorge Wildlife Sanctuary Orissa

Location: 105 km west of Cuttack, Orissa
Area: 22 km of river; Sanctuary 79,552 ha
Altitude: 75-100 m

Description of site: A 22-km stretch of the Mahanadi river in the Satkoshia Gorge between Tikerpara and Barmul. The river is very slow-flowing for much of the year and contains many deep pools, even during the dry season. Numerous sand bars and gravel beds are exposed at low water levels

Climatic conditions: Tropical monsoon climate Principal vegetation: No information

Land tenure: State-owned

Conservation measures taken: The Satkoshia Gorge Sanctuary was established in 1976 to protect a population of the endangered gharial (Gavialis gangeticus). Some 107 captive-reared individuals were released into the river between 1977 and March 1980 to augment the vestigial wild population. The animals are strictly protected within the Sanctuary

Economic and social values: No information

Fauna: Until recently, the Satkoshia Gorge section of the Mahanadi river supported one of the last significant populations of the endangered gharial (Gavialis gangeticus) in India. The last wild hatchlings were seen in 1974, and no eggs have been laid since the 1976 breeding season. A major effort is, however, being made to restore the population with animals reared in captivity from eggs collected elsewhere

Special floral values: No information
