List of National parks and Wild life sanctuaries in India

There are about 80 major Wild life sanctuaries and National parks in India which are described in this article by giving the details of the name of the particular Sanctuary, the area in which it is present along with the name of the state.


A sanctuary is a place where some thing is protected from the rest of the world. There are two types of sanctuaries present, one is of the type of 'Human Sanctuary' and the other is of 'Non-Human Sanctuary'. The present article is with respect to 'Non-Human Sanctuary' meaning the habitat which is provided for animals and plants. In sanctuaries, artificial environment is provided which is similar in conditions where the wild life animals would feel the same as their natural life.
There are many places present in India to preserve the wild animal life and to protect their natural habitat. Primarily there are many more present then the given list but in course of time the major parks are only left and most of them have been in a position in not getting the fund from the Indian Government.
It is the duty of the every Indian to protect these types of environmental places so as to preserve some of the previous aged animals which are to be protected from entering in to the books for photo purposes, they must be viewed alive. For this nothing has to be done except leaving some land and not defenestrating the forests entirely. If any these kinds of things are visible, we must be immediate in action which is sufficient to prove as a responsible Indian.
