WILDLIFE SANCTUARIES IN INDIA

India is a land of fascinating natural wilderness manifested in varieties of species of animals and birds found in the country. India harbours 60% of the world's tiger population, 50% of Asian elephants, 80% of the one-horned rhinoceros and the entire remaining population of Asiatic lion.The rich and fascinating variety of India's wildlife can be seen in the 80 national parks, 440 sanctuaries and 23 tiger reserves established by the Government of India in an attempt to conserve this vital resource. More than 500 species of mammals, 1, 220 species of birds, 1, 600 species of reptiles and amphibians, and 57, 000 species of insects populate the subcontinent.

The Sanctuaries and the National Parks contain some of the rare species in the world. The Gir Forest in Gujarat is the only surviving home of the Asiatic lion, Manas and Kaziranga in Assam have a significant population of one-horned rhinos, Periyar in Kerala is best known for wild elephant viewing. Brown antlered deer at Keibul Lamjao National Park in Manipur, hangul or Kashmir stag at Dachigam, Srinagar, and blackbuck at Velavadhar in Gujarat are the only homes of these species.

The Wildlife Sanctuaries and National Parks also play an important role in protecting the rare species from the poachers. They provide safe havens away from the unscrupulous “animal traders” who deal in selling the body parts of the animals at fabulous price to interested parties for medicinal or luxury purposes.



The tiger population in India is well protected by the government through Project Tiger, initiated in `1973. It identified major areas inhabited by tigers that eventually became area protected by the projects, enabling a significant increase of the tiger population. Bandhavgarh and Kanha sanctuaries in Madhya Pradesh; Sariska and Rabnthambore in Rajasthan and derbans in West Bengal are some of the country's best known tiger reserves.

Indian wildlife is being protected by legal statute namely the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972. India is also the signatory of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITIES).
