Evaluation Report Format Name of person------------ Post---- Date of visit----- Compartment no.---General Health of Wild Life Very Good--------+ + + [Write 3 plus marks] Good-++ Weak- + Accordingly write down the general health of total wild herbivores in a flock. Write about the abnormalities observed if any. 40. Name of Vegetables In The Compartment Grasses---- Fruit trees TreesDistance of water source Near the compartment or away from compartment Presence of Mineral Depot [ Salt Lick ] There are certain areas in the Forest where Minerals are present. Wild animals use to go to that place & licks soil or stones 41. Distance from Village Grazing alone in groups or with Domestic Herbivores Out break of any disease in near by villages If yes, immediately report to Higher authority & also inform to near by Govt. Veterinary Doctor Names of Wild Carnivores present in the area 42. Write down on all above points & submit your report to higher authority for necessary action. With the help of your report monitoring of wild life heath will be possible. Compartments where heath of wild life is weak, more attention is to be given. The conditions in the healthy area are in the record & are with you. Compare it on following points. 1] Availability of Grasses, Fruit trees in both areas. In healthy & in weak wild life area.Note down the difference between two areas Take suitable measures accordingly. Introduce the new verity of trees & grasses in weak sector for better results. 2] Other factors like water holes, Common grazing of wild life & domestic animals & mineral depot must be consider on war footage. 3] make the weak wild life area like that of healthy area. This will definitely help in improving general health of wild life. 4] Collect faecal material from all the area. Get it examined. Collect only random samples & not of each wild life, The above measures will definitely improves the general health of wild life in all ranges. 43.
