Debrigarh Wildlife Sanctuary UPSC NOTE


Debrigarh Wildlife Sanctuary

  • The Debrigarh wildlife sanctuary is located in the Bargarh district of Odisha.

  • It is situated near the city of Sambalpur's Hirakud Dam.

  • Debrigarh Wildlife Sanctuary is an important location for the conservation of various local wildlife and their habitat. 

  • The sanctuary is bound on the east and north by the huge Hirakud reservoir.

  • It is one of the select few sanctuaries in the state supporting both terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity.

Relocation of villagers

  • Debrigarh wildlife sanctuary has been made completely free of any human settlement following one of the country’s largest ‘peaceful’ relocations of forest-dwellers.

  • As many as 400 families have moved out of their villages after a series of consultations.

  • In a State where permanent human settlements are common even within wildlife sanctuaries, Debrigarh now stands out as an exception alongside the Nalabana Bird Sanctuary in Chilika Lake.

  • The positive impact of this relocation was immediately evident in the tangible drop in incidence of man-wildlife conflict in Debrigarh.

  • No force was used for relocating villagers from the sanctuary.

  • Each eligible family was paid ₹15 lakh as compensation.
