To say ..it was a good informative & a well drafted for the beginners on introduction to nature & its importance for existence. We had some trails in morning & evenings everyday briefing on the plants , insects & birds.
Bannerghatta had some mammals (herbivorous track) like nilgai, black buck ,India gaur, sambar , barking deer & spotted deer.

It was pretty hot during day times & i usually see the barking deer & birds come near campus the to drink water .
