Wildlife Sanctuaries, Birds Sanctuaries and National Parks in India

Indian subcontinents are not only well known for its Cultural diversity, but also have a diverse range of flora and fauna. Human activities are permitted in a wildlife sanctuary whereas these are completely restricted in a national park. Hunting is prohibited without permission in a sanctuary; however, grazing and movement of cattle is permitted. Therefore, India houses several wildlife sanctuaries and national parks that help in preserving the wildlife in its natural form. Hunting and grazing are totally prohibited in a national park.

India’s forest cover ranges from the tropical rain forest of the Andaman Islands, Western Ghats, and Northeast India to the coniferous forest of the Himalaya. Lying along the Indomalaya ecozone, the major terrestrial biomes are composed of polar, temperate, dry, wet and (sub) tropical making them eligible for different species (to thrive), like the Tiger, Elephant, Crocodile, Cobra, Apes, Spotted Deer, Sambar Deer, Hog Deer, Barking Deer, Swamp Deer, One-Horned Rhinoceros, Sloth Bears, Blue Bull (Neelgai), Indian Gazelle (Chinkara), Asiatic lions, Goats and multiple ranges of avi-faunas (bird-species). Wildlife in India is world-recognized and marked by the presence of around 99 national parks, 442 wildlife sanctuaries and 43 tiger reserves all over the different states. The establishment of these different national parks and wildlife reserves are recognized under the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) categories II protected areas.
