In 1972, Indian Government announced & introduced the “Wildlife Protection Act” and “Project Tiger” to protect the natural habitats of reliant species.
As of July 2017, there were 103 national parks encompassing an area of 40,500 km2 (15,600 sq mi), comprising 1.23% of India’s total surface area.
India also has 543 Wildlife Sanctuaries. Many National Parks were initially wildlife sanctuaries. Among these, the 50 tiger reserves are governed by “Project Tiger”. Some wildlife sanctuaries are specifically for bird sanctuary, e.g. Keoladeo Ghana National Park before attaining National Park status. Many of them being dedicated to a particular wild animal, e.g. Jawai Leopard Sanctuary in Rajasthan.
The conservative measures taken by the Indian Government for the conservation of Tigers was awarded by a 30% rise in the number of tigers in 2015.
