Wildlife of India

India is a land of splendours and has a bit of everything on offer-from the colossal Himalayas to the stunning beaches of God’s own country; from the amazing tribes of the north east to the beautiful desert forts of the west.

For a connoisseur of wildlife, there is a lot on the platter too. There are innumerable attractions that are world renowned and a must on the list of the wildlife aficionados. An approximate figure would be 80 national parks, 23 Tiger Reserves and 441 Wildlife Sanctuaries. It is also home to about 1250 different species of birds. Quite a number of rare and endangered species can be found in the country. The marine life is equally fascinating too. But there is not only a diversity of species but terrain too and that is what makes the experience more intriguing.

    I bet that would be really interesting to go on a tour like that. If I was ever to go out of the country, that would be one place I would visit. Another would be Italy.

    Wildlife is one of my most favorite subject and I’m looking for the best territory of wild species for my next study tour and as far I know Sunderbans is the biggest mangrove forest so I think it’ll be great choice. Thanks for the illustration of the most attractive place of Asia. Good luck Shalu :).
