Coorg Wildlife Society is a community initiative to promote wildlife and environmental conservation in the region. Its efforts are primarily aimed at increasing awareness about the catchment area on the Cauvery River. The society organizes treks ( at a cost) to Pushpagiri, Brahmagiri Sanctuary and many other areas of Coorg. It also provides licences for angling in the Cauvery for a nominal cost. Though you must return your catch to the river, there is nothing as thrilling as catching a 30 – 40 kg mahseer if you are into fishing.
