About this book

Language: English

From the foreword:

"Protected Areas play a crucial role in conservation and management of biodiversity. The Indian state of Haryana has a network of ten Protected Areas (PAs) – two national parks (Kalesar in the district Yamunanagar and Sultanpur in the district Gurgaon) and eight wildlife sanctuaries (Bhindawas, Khaparwas, Nahar, Bir-Shikargarh, Chhilchhila, Chautala, Saraswati, and Bir Baraban). The network covers an area of 303.92 km2 and constitutes 0.69% of the state’s geographical area.

Kalesar is the largest Protected Area in Haryana covering c. 250 km2. Of this, an area of c. 134 km2 of the lower Shiwaliks in the Himalayan foothills was declared as the "Kalesar Wildlife Sanctuary" on 24th March 1999 and subsequently, an area of 115.70 km2 was declared as the "Kalesar National Park" on 8th December 2003.

This PA is situated on the boarders of Ilaryana, Himachal Pradesh, U.P. and Uttarakhand on the main road which lead to Paonta Sahib (Himachal Pradesh) from Yamunanagar. As per the wildlife census, undertaken in May 2004, one can find wild boars, sambhars, hares, red jungle fowl, porcupine, monkeys, chitals, a variety of birds, reptiles, frogs, etc.

The Zoological Survey of India Dehradun under its mandate has attempted to enumerate the faunal diversity of this conservation reserve from July 2007 to February 2010. This document reports 608 species of fauna belonging to ten animal groups, including 28 Globally Threatened species."
