Guest post: Madhya Pradesh – the best place to explore Indian Wildlife

The Indian subcontinent is substantially rich in biodiversity and Madhya Pradesh takes the lead maintaining 9 National Parks and 25 Sanctuaries. Spread over an area of 10,862 sq. km., its natural reserves provide much needed shelter to the wildlife species which are rapidly losing their natural habitats due to human encroachment and various natural disasters.

Five national parks of the state are managed as project tiger areas. Most of these national parks provide elephant safaris while a couple of them also have boat rides and jeep safaris as well. This ensures that wildlife lovers get to explore the best of nature without causing any harm to it. Below is a glimpse of the richness of Madhya Pradesh’s biodiversity.

Bandhavgarh National Park

It is often said that if you can’t have a glimpse of a tiger during your wildlife safari in Bandhavgarh, then you are not likely to see it anywhere else. Though, it might sound a bit exaggerated, but when a count of around 22-25 tigers resides in this area open to tourists, you are bound to hear such exhilarating statements.

We humans are so selfish aren’t we? We have cut wood, trees and destroyed the habitat of animals so much so that a lot many of them have become extinct, endangered or are on the verge of getting wiped out. Humanity is about living and letting others live their life happily. Therefore, isn’t this a gross violation of humanity? Aren’t we behaving as masters of the world without a care for the precious lives of others? Don’t animals have the right to live without having to worry about their survival day in and day out?

It’s quite unfortunate that despite being the national animal of India, the Bengal Tiger is among the most threatened animals from the activities of humans. While they have suffered from years due to poaching, human conflicts and habitat destruction, their numbers have increased to 2,226 as per the census 2014 which is a 30% increase from 2010. Special initiatives like setting up a tiger protection task-force, arresting poachers, trying to minimize human – animal conflicts among others has helped in increasing their numbers.
