About this book

Kaziranga and the great Indian one-horned rhinoceros are synonymous. The very name 'Kaziranga' inspires awe, pride and deep respect in the minds and hearts of the Assamese people.

This floodplain is a child of the Brahmaputra river. Here Rhinoceros unicornis is making its last stand in a mosaic of incredible ecosystems that fall in the Indomalayan Realm. The Kaziranga Inheritance traces the conservation history of the park. It also highlights the threats faced by the rhino today and reminds us of those who lived and died to protect the wild beauty of Kaziranga.

In Kaziranga, you can hear the trumpet of elephants, the call of the hoolock gibbon, and the display of amorous Bengal Floricans. The more adventurous could sight graceful Gangetic river dolphins and, with some luck, the secretive tiger, in what is believed to be the most densely populated tiger habitat in the world. Kaziranga is home to all these and more, including the Asiatic wild buffalo, swamp deer, sambar, hog deer and over 500 species of birds.

The Kaziranga Inheritance is a photographic tribute to this wildlife haven and the people who have battled for its survival. Showcasing some of the most stunning images of the biodiversity of Northeast India, this visual portfolio transports you to a long-ago world of immeasurable worth.
