Wild Life in Rajasthan
       
 
Ranthambhor National Park: The Ranthambhor National park (Tiger Reserve) lies on the junction of Aravali and Vindhyas just 14 Km from Sawai Madhopur in Eastern Rajasthan. It sprawls over a varying and undulating landscape. The scenery changes dramatically from gentle and steep slopes of the Vindhyas and sharp and conical hills of the Aravali. A tenth century fort also blends amicably with the background. Pure sands of Dhok (Anogeissus pendula) interspersed with grasslands at the plateaus; meadows in valleys and luxuriant foliage around the canals make the jungle. Three big lakes - Padam Talab (meaning Lake), Malik Talab and Raj Bagh - are similar turquoises studded in the vast forest that abounds with aquatic vegetation including duckweeds, lilies and lotus.
 















 
       
 
Sariska Tiger Reserve : This park is situated in Alwar district of Rajasthan. Although larger than Ranthambor, it is less commercialized and has less tigers but a similar topography. It covers an area of 800 sq km, with a core area of approximately 500 sq km. The Northern Aravali Hills dominate the skyline with their mixture of sharp cliffs and long narrow valleys. The area was declared a sanctuary in 1955 and became a National Park in 1979.

The landscape of Sariska comprises of hills and narrow valleys of the Aravali hill range. The topography of Sariska supports scrub-thorn arid forests, dry deciduous forests, rocks and grasses. The broad range of wildlife here is a wonderful example of ecological adoption and tolerance, for the climate here is variable as well as erratic.

Sariska is a storehouse of wild flora and fauna, housing some of the famous species of deciduous plants and wild animals. It also cradles some of the rare species of birds, both native and migratory. Moreover, the Kankawati Fort is one of the wonders of Sariska that stands alone and neglected. As if aware of the fact that the fort is abandoned, the jungle beasts, especially the leopards, come here for some outdoor hunting spree.
   
       
 
Keoladeo Ghana National Park : An ornithologists' delight, Keoladeo Ghana National Park in Rajasthan, popularly known as Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary is sandwiched between historical cities of Agra and Jaipur. This 29 sq km park, approximately 10 sq km of which comprises of marshes and bogs, is one of the world's greatest heronries and historical in its own way.

The Maharaja of Bharatpur is credited for creating the national park in 1890, though conservation was the last thing on his mind. The government banned the indiscriminate shooting of birds in 1965. Conservation efforts originally started by Dr. Salim Ali received a further impetus when the area was deemed a National Park in March 1982. In 1985, Keoladeo Ghana in Bharatpur was accepted as a World Heritage Site.

Keoladeo Ghana or Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary hosts a variety of bird species from across the globe. Close to 380 species of birds are found. Its shallow, fresh water marsh attracts thousands of migratory birds. Over 10,000 nests of egrets, darters, cormorants, grey herons and storks hatch nearly 20,000 to 30,000 chicks every year. There is an infinite variety of migratory birds, making it one of the most inviting destinations in the world for ornithologists, amateurs and nature lovers. Mammals like the sambhar, blackbuck, chital, nilgai, fishing cat, otter and mongoose also roam freely here.
