Did you know that the idea of a game sanctuary originated in the 1920s as a response to the indiscriminate killings that wild animals were subjected to at that time? Today, there are over 200 wildlife sanctuaries in India, out of which over 100 are national parks. This book offers an overview of some of the more prominent ones. Divided state-wise, it focuses on the history, development, extent, flora and fauna, and the various conservation measures in place in each of the national parks and wildlife sanctuaries featured between its covers.
