If you have never seen a dlphin before or are simply a nature lover and love the sea creatures then you do not have to think of foreign shores anymore. Mangalore will soon have dolphins in the water of their beaches and it will be a sight to behold. Imagine dolphins leaping out of the water like we see in the movies! The forest department of Karnataka as come up with a conservation plan and here is everything you need to know.

The plan that the forest department has come up with begins with a survey to find the sea creatures post the spotting of a number of carcasses that washed up ashore in the past. If you have not been to Mangalore and not witnessed the greenery and the beaches there then you have been truly missing out on something beautiful to soak in. Their beaches are underrated and how!

But now that we will have dolphins there and very soon, you have a bigger reason to head to the place. 

Just last year, the beaches near Surathkal area saw 6 humpback dolphins washing up ashore. However the officials could not find out the key reason of their deaths due to th elack of SOPs but one theory is that pollution could be it. But now, the plan is to conserve at all costs.

The officials have come up with a 5 year plan. The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI), Fisheries College, Indian Coast Guard and others will be visiting the site. The waters from Mulki to Ullal will be surveyed and demarcated.

This is a very calm beach and not crowded either. It makes for an ideal get away due to these reasons where you can just sit and unwind. The catch is that there is no public transport here so you will have to arrange your own vehicle. Another way is that you take a ferry that goes vua Gurupura river from Sultan Battery.
