Wildlife Sanctuaries in India State Wise


Except the areas of reserve forests or territorial waters, any area can be demarcated as a Wildlife Sanctuary by the State Government for protecting, propagating or developing particular kind of flora and fauna or its environment. Very restricted human activities like livestock grazing, etc. are permitted for the population living inside the Wildlife Sanctuaries. Wildlife exploitation is strictly prohibited inside and is a punishable offense. Special permission is required for collecting the forest produce. By declaring and establishing Wildlife Sanctuaries, National Parks, Wetland Sites and Biosphere Reserves, Government is trying to conserve the nature as much as possible.
