Bird and Animal Sanctuaries
There is no doubt about the rich cultural heritage of India. But the glorious wildlife of India is something which has become a major tourist attracting factor. The unexploited forests and the animals and birds living there, have been the object of many sightseeing expeditions. Since the days of Corbett, the animal sanctuary and the bird sanctuary in India have been developed as major tourist destinations.
The flora and fauna of the country are visible in these vast expanses of land which have been over the years identified and converted into animal senturies in India. Realizing the importance of the conservation of the forest, the government has taken steps to name these forest areas as bird sanctuaries in India as well as given them national park status. Various animal senturies in India can be found spread uniformly throughout the country, most of which is concentrated in the plains and foothills of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
By converting a forest park into animal sanctuary, there has been an effort to make it a restricted area to allow the animals to live in peace. Similarly the bird sanctuary is conserved to allow the birds to live in the forest lands which also go on to protect the plants. Gradually the animal sanctuary became tourist attractions with the mix of plants and animals and they were famous for a particular species.
The elephant is found mostly in the Periyar wild life sanctuary, in rajaji national park, in nagarhole national park. The lions are the main attractions in animal sanctuary of the famous Gir national park. Tiger roam freely in the Ranthambore national park, the Bandhavgarh national park, in Kanha and Corbett national parks. There are other animal sanctuaries in India which are famous for animals like the black panther in the Dandeli wildlife sanctuary, the rhinocerous in Kaziranga national park, Jaldapara and Royal Chitwan national park, the Kashmir stag in Dachigam national park and musk deer and snow leopard to name a few. Similarly, the various bird sanctuaries in India are famous for the birds that either live there or migrate regularly as in Chilika Lake, Bharatpur bird sanctuary, Shambhar salt lakes and Assan Barage. Butterflies are also found in Namdapha wildlife sanctuary.
