About this book

Sariska is a prominent national park not far from Delhi and Jaipur. The dry deciduous Aravalli forests of Sariska support a number of large mammals including the celebrated tiger. Besides, the area is replete with old monuments, forts, temples, and palaces.

The book is a comprehensive document on the Sariska National Park. Sariska is profiled for the first time, with a description of its geography, conservation history, tourism, flora and fauna. The book discusses some of the major conservation problems facing the park-land settlement, poaching, tourism pressure, buffer zone development, access and control, highway relocation and park expansion. The controversial issue of village resettlement is also discussed, as this is critical for safeguarding Sariska's survival as a wilderness area. The book provides an overview of the state of wildlife conservation in India, with suggestions on how the perilous situation can be improved.
