Abstract

Navegaon National Park is one of the key conservation areas for wildlife and well known for its avian diversity. In the avifaunal composition the Raptors as top predators have most integral part to maintain the ecosystem proper. Due to the various threats found in and around the park, their status survey was done and the conservation measures according to their conservation needs were discussed. In the present investigation, 38 species of the Raptors were recorded from the Park and surrounding area. In total recorded 38 species, 10 species were common, 11 were uncommon, 05 were occasional, 04 were rare and 08 species were found to be winter visitors. Various threats like sporadic fire, cattle grazing and illegal NTFP (Non Timber Forest Product) collection by local communities affecting the safe nesting, roosting sites and prey base and ultimately the population size.
