Chinkara Sanctuary

From a land well known for the hunting hound – the Mudhol hound – pulling off a Chinkara (Indian Gazelle) Sanctuary does not just speak of the efforts of humans, but also the tenacity of our wildlife to survive despite all odds.

The logo represents the fragile beauty of the Chinkara deer lucidly, with an apparent likeness to it’s subject. This was done for the villagers in the surrounding area. It was to inform them in as clear a way as possible that they were stepping into a sanctuary.

Giving the home of an endangered species of deer an identity to count on.

The Chinkara was quite common in old Bijapur and parts of Belgaum districts. One used to come across them in forests as well as in agricultural fields bordering the forest areas. Wood cutters, shepherds, gum collectors and other people working in the forest frequently spotted new born fawns, which were irresistible to them. So it was not uncommon to see Chinkaras as pets in the villages, temples and other religious places.
