    Presentation
    Description
    Kas plateau which is a Rock Outcrop in the Dist Satara of Maharashtra state, is under severe threat because of excessive uncontrolled tourism. It is a World Heritage Site and a Biodiversity Hotspot. It has some endemic species which are found nowhere else. I tried to do an year-round photo-documentation during 2014-2015 of its flora and fauna. Once untouched pristine beauty of this region has become a tourist attraction and everything coming under that. This pdf contains special features of this plateau.
