Bhagwan Mahavir Sanctuary is one of the richest natural reserves of Goa
. Located amidst the dense forests it is one of the biggest biodiversity of India. Surrounded by abundant deciduous forest it covers an area of 240 sq.kms of area. Alongwith deciduous trees the forest has wide variety of shrubs and wild bushes which supports other lives in the sanctuary. Bhagwan Mahavir Sanctuary is also known for Molem National Park which is located at the centre of the sanctuary. Molem national park includes huge variety of wild animals among which the types of deers and gaurs, Malayan giant squirrels, clusters of monkeys and slithering Cobras and python are commonly found. Surrounded with dense forests and large evergreen trees the national park also includes the wild panthers, tigers and elephants which reside in these forests.
Besides being a haven for the rare animals the national park receives a number of migratory birds. Among the most dangerous animals are the doles, wild dogs and a number of carnivorous animals. The doles frighten the villagers by getting scattered into clusters. They station themselves in all the strategic places within the dense forests of the national park and make a sudden attack on the prey. Often the large gaurs fall a prey to these doles which bleed to death. Along with its natural floras and fauna the sanctuary is surrounded with a number of tourist spots like Tambdi, Surla and the Dudhsagar waterfalls
