Hub Dam Wildlife Sanctuary
Hub Dam is the Pakistan's third largest dam. It is situated in the north of Karachi bordering the Kirthar National Park. The dam was constructed in 1981 on the Hub River, in a region of arid plains and low stony hills. Much of the shoreline is steeply shelving and stony, and there are many shallow bays and small islands.
The greater part of this wildlife sanctuary (in Balochistan) is unprotected; the eastern shore and area south of the Dam (in Sindh) are protected in the Kirthar National Park and Hub Dam Wildlife Sanctuary., respectively. The lake formed by the dam covers an area of 32 square miles and is an ideal place for bird watching. There is plenty of waterfowl in the lake, both resident and migratory.
