Dudhwa National Park


Dudhwa National Park Dudhwa National Park , one of the largest and thickest forests of India and also one of the most precious reserves of Indian Wildlife. This tiger reserve is located in the Terai bordering Nepal . The park covers 498.29 sq. km. and has fine sal forests and extensive grasslands. The tall coarse grass, swampy depressions and lakes characterise the wetlands of the Park. The grasslands are also ideal terrain for the Indian one horned rhinoceros. In 1984, a number of rhinos were translocated from Assam and Nepal , in an attempt to extend their habitats and to exclude the possibility of wiping out entire populations through disease and epidemics. Besides massive grassland and swamps, the Park boasts of one of the finest qualities of Sal (Shorea robusta) forests in India. Some of these trees are more than 150 years old and over 70 feet tall. This forest area was first notified as a Wildlife Sanctuary in 1965, and later as a National Park in 1977.

This forest was a safe haven for both poachers and timber smugglers. This precious forest land was a life-support system for the locals. Dudhwa National Park faced intense opposition from foresters, game lovers and local inhabitants. This was a turning point in the history of Dudhwa National Park , when Billy Arjun Singh who stepped in to see Dudhwa through its fate. Committed to the point of being obsessive, this man stood firmly in favour of the jungle and convinced the erstwhile Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to notify the forest as a National Park. Dudhwa National Park had 50 tigers, 41 elephants and 76 bears apart from five species of deer, more than 400 species of birds, a few crocodiles, and some other species of mammals and reptiles in 1977. The grasslands are also ideal terrain for the Indian one horned rhinoceros. Other inhabitants include the sloth bear, jackal, wild pig and the lesser cats - the fishing cat, leopard cat, jungle cat and civet. Dudhwa also has an abundance of birds. Its marshes are home to a range of water-birds both local and migratory.
