Geography of Dang, Gujarat

Forest of the Dangs
Dang District has part of a forest that includes Purna Wildlife Sanctuary, which is shared between the districts of Dang and Tapi in Gujarat and Nandurbar District in Maharashtra, and Vansda National Park in Navsari District, which shares a continuous tract of forest with Valsad District. The evergreen forest in this region is in the range of the rusty-spotted cat. Like Ratanmahal Wildlife Sanctuary, there have been extinctions in the population of birds. Also, though the Bengal tiger is reportedly extinct in Gujarat, the region where southeastern Gujarat meets Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh nevertheless has tigers, making this forest a potential habitat of the tiger.
