The Pilikula Bioreserve Park provides sanctuary to wild animals orphaned in the forests around Mangalore. With wildlife in the Western Ghats being severely threatened by habitat destruction, it is very important to safeguard the wild animals that remain.

One of the ways of ensuring this is by rearing orphaned animals till they are able to manage themselves. They're then let into the wild. The Pilikula Bioreserve Park at Moodushedde Village in Vamanjoor does exactly that. The park not only provides a sanctuary for orphaned animals but also plays host to excess animals from zoos across the state.

Irrespective of the reasons why these animals end up at Pilikula, visitors to the park have obvious reasons to cheer. They not only get to see some magnificent animals up close, but also spend some time in the environs that replicate the wild to near perfection.

The park also has tiger, crocodiles, deer, snakes including a king cobra and porcupines also the king of the jungle, the lion.
