National Parks A national park is a relatively extensive area: (1) In which one or more ecosystems have not been physically altered by human exploitation and occupation, where plant and animal species, geomorphologic-sites and habitats are of special scientific, educational and recreational interest, or where the natural scenery is of great beauty; (2) Or eliminate exploitation or occupation of the entire area in the briefest possible time and to effectively complete respect for the ecologic, geomorphologic or aesthetic features which lead to its establishment; (3) Where visitors are allowed and special condition for inspirational, educational, cultural and recreational purposes (IUCN). A more than 166 national parks have been authorized In INDIA Kanha National Park (MP) Ranthambore National Park (RAJASTHAN)


Wildlife Sanctuary “It is an area where killing and capturing of any species of birds or animals is prohibited except under orders of competent authority and whole boundaries and characters should be sacrosanct (free from outrage) as far as possible ”. India has over 551 animal sanctuaries, referred to as Wildlife Sanctuaries. Among these, the 28 Tiger Reserves are governed by Project Tiger. E.g. Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary, Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary (Kerala), Manas Wildlife Sanctuary (ASSAM).. While the principles underlying a wildlife sanctuary and national park are essentially the same viz. maximum protection, the fundamental difference is that a sanctuary is created by order of a competent authority, who may be the Chief Wildlife Warden/Chief Conservator of Forests or Minister of State; while a national park is created and correspondingly can be abolished, mutated or changed only by the Legislation of State. The status and degree of permanency and protection is, therefore, much higher in a national park than in a sanctuary.
