About this book

Language: English

Corbett National Park, in the state of Uttarakhand, is an important piece of India's environmental heritage. This precious landscape is not only a reminder of how green, clean and beautiful our world once was; it is also the corner stone of India's conservation history. It was here in 1936 that the first National Park of India was established. In 1973, when Project Tiger was launched, Dhikala in Corbett National Park was chosen as the venue for the unveiling of that historic event.

A collection of some awe-inspiring environment and wildlife images and well-researched complementing text makes Corbett National Park: Domain of the Wild a visual delight and a good informative read.

The book is divided into three informal sections. The first part deals with the history of the area, the impact of unregulated hunting and trophy hunters of the Raj era. It also delves into the large scale deforestation that took a toll on the environment and the wild animals. It further describes the dawn of conservation consciousness that eventually established this wilderness as the first National Park in India.

The second part gives a glimpse of the beauty that is Corbett; with its magnificent wildlife from the largest land mammals to the smallest insects. Corbett is home to the Bengal tiger, the Asian elephant, four species of deer, varied smaller mammals, reptiles and a large number of bird species. '

The last section looks at the threats to India's precious environment and wildlife and ends with a note on India’s responsibility as a ‘global citizen and custodian’ of the world's largest population of not only tigers, but also of many other species threatened worldwide.
