Some Rare and Endangered Species found In Assam

As I am so in Love with Wild Animals and Coming from a Place like Assam admiring Nature makes much more sense I guess..So When I see the Wild getting depleted day by day I can’t stop myself but think how Humans have become cruel day by day then again I realize we Human now-a-days don’t even care for other Humans and the Question of caring animals doesn’t make any sense…What Say?

  1. Hi,
    I heard of one civet-like animal (or type of small/large Indian civet), but not the JOHAMAL (a civet having the smell of scented JOHA rice) called here in Assam – GERELA or GENDERA (The term GERELA is used for people who eats much & has a big tummy). This animals are heard of using common place of defecating and use to plugg their arsehole so that even in utmost bowl pressure they don’t need to drop excreta & can move to their common place for dropping (dunghill) – that’s why they are locally called HAGA GENDERS (HAGA means stool/defecation).
    Would u please let me know about this animal which, I heard, found only in Assam.

  2. I appreciate your work for spreading awareness about the endangered species of Assam.And as being an Assamese I too would do something for these species.

  3. Dear Mr Harsha,
    I came across this page as I was searching for the rare and endangered plants from the north east. The presentation is quite nice and well worked out. My interest was plants and the potential of tissue culture (TC) technique for multiplication and conservation. My TC method is the only one that even the common unemployed can make use of in their own home if they want. The total cost is also minimal. There is nothing to hide and I keep the photos and other write ups free for the people so that it might reach even through the copy cats.
    so forget about copy cats as they in turn send out the message at large.

  4. These are preceius species pride of the land of Red river and blue hills.To be keep them alive until end of the universe.

  5. great work bro..but these are the only a small part of the beatiful animals and birds found in assam…there are some other species also found which are endangered like asiatic water buffalo, wild horse, clouded leopard, spectacled monkey etc…

  6. Hats off Harsha! Bringing awareness is the first step to save them! Since you are a native of Assam, I have a suggestion for you. It is to start a campaign in link: , I think it would really work! It is the way for we common people to try to bring a change by getting united.

  7. Thank you, Harsha, for bringing this forth and reminding us that we are all interconnected, including the animals. Humankind would do well to learn to respect them and find a way to peacefully co-exist.

  11. The sensitive cartoon with the compassionate text in relation to the threatened denizens of our world of nature shows your sense of responsibility and love. The beautiful pictures accompanying the text make us feel all the more concerned as we love them.

    • Thanks a lot Kajal for these wonderful words.. 🙂
      And Yes we should be concerned for them as they make the Environment without them Humans are just useless I feel…

  12. Wonderful information . But the work of conversation should take place at grass root level and human interference with forest should drastically reduce in all terms including tourism.

  13. Great sketch and great thought behind it!! North East is extremely rich in Wildlife and nature…and it is sad that few rare species is depleting at a high rate evey year. I do feel that few NGOs and trusts are doing commendable work out there, we should do our bit and support them!

    • Thanks a Lot Aditi for dropping by and sharing your Views..
      Things are now somewhat good in North East with NGO’s ,Locals and The Forest Dept. working to save these Creatures.. 🙂

      thanks for Dropping by and Appreciating.. 🙂

  14. Wow… Nice post again. Your post reminds me of one thing – “basudheiva kutumbakam” . If we follow this, then I am sure we will not worry about these things.

    • Thanks a Lot Dear Friend.. 🙂
      But I am afraid we Humans will seldom follow that…We don’t even bother to respect Humanity and talking about animals if far from the subject.. 😦
      You Know we are creating pit holes for ourself,just wait and see how we fall…

  15. It’s true Harsha. Animals are facing extinction and our government is doing nothing against it 😦

    You collected these much information and presented it in a well organized manner. I like it 🙂

  16. this is was truely not known to me man !! Hispid Hare the Roofed Turtle .. Golden Langoors .. man I got to see them before they perish like dodos .. Indian govt is least bothered about Indian poor going extinct .. what they will bother about these poor animals ..

    • Nitesh Mere Bhai I will take you to Assam.. 🙂
      And Yes Government is least bothered about the people and animals are out of Question… 😦
      But You Know Things are somewhat getting better in Assam with Locals understanding their Importance and doing their best in preserving them..
