It supports a large variety of birds (including owls and pheasants) and mammals. 243 species of butterflies have been recorded in the Estate. The butterfly collection, begun in 1947, is now the fourth largest reference collection of Lepidoptera in India, after the three National Collections. The Butterfly Research Centre undertakes identification, taxonomic support, surveys and conducts certificate courses for increasing awareness and capacity building in butterfly and moth taxonomy, ecology and curation of specimens.
