KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK PROJECT

KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK PROJECT

It is said that before the establishment of the Kaziranga National park, Mary Curzon, the wife of the Viceroy of India, visited the park.

She was desperate to see the one-horned rhinoceros but couldn’t find one.

Therefore, the Viceroy of India (her husband) took action to protect this special species of the rhinoceros by initiating plans for their protection.

Thereafter, many meetings and a series of documentation, the Kaziranga Reserve Forest was established in the year 1905.

Finally, it was declared National Park in 1908.

What are the major animals found here?

Kaziranga National Park is home to around 2,200 one-horned rhinoceros.

This area has elephant grassy meadows, swampy lagoons, and dense evergreen forests.

Therefore, many animals such as one-horned rhinoceros, elephants, wild water buffalo and swamp deer take shelter in Kaziranga National Park.

Moreover, the broad diversity of wildlife beauty is the attraction point of Kaziranga.

Not only animals but you can also find varieties of birds here.

The tiger reserve is also an attraction point for many people.

Kaziranga National Park: UNESCO world Heritage Center:

 The Kaziranga National Park was inscribed on the World Heritage List on 6th December,1985 by UNESCO.

Moreover, the Park is well known for its success in conserving the greater one-horned rhinoceros.

 As far as the history of Kaziranga is concerned Lady Curzon first heard about Rhino of Kaziranga from her British Tea Planter friends.

She visited Assam in 1904.

Although she could not see the animal but spotted hoof prints with three toes which concerned Lady Curzon that such an animal exist.

 On her return she persuaded Lord Curzon to declare 7,273,60 acres of Kaziranga as a reserved forest.

Finally Kaziranga was declared as Reserved Forest on 3rd January,1908 and was closed for shooting. 

Best time to visit Kaziranga National Park:

 The best time to visit the Kaziranga National park is from November to April.

The park remains closed from May to October every year for the visitors.

In the summer season, the climate in the Kaziranga gets dry and windy.

Therefore, at that time  you can see animals around water bodies as they come to drink water and relax.

In the monsoon season, the Kaziranga National Park closes because of the warnings of Brahmaputra River Floods.

Threats to biodiversity in kaziranga National Park

Following are the major threats that have a direct bearing on the wildlife, habitats and values of the World Heritage site:

Poaching

Poaching (hunting and Killing) of Rhino is a major problem in Kaziranga. One horned rhino is the main target of poachers. Due to heavy demand and ever increasing price of Rhino horn in the illegal markets, incidents of Rhino poaching has increased. If this continues, rhinos are likely to get extinct.

Seasonal flooding:

Floods in Brahmaputra river of Assam is a regular feature. Although floods are good in maintaining the balance in vegetation, there are many side effects of flood as well. Death of wild animals, shortage of food and fodder, unattended animals, highway accidents and damage to infrastructure are some of the problems created by floods every year.

Climate change impacts:

Due to Climate change, Humans and wild animals face new challenges for survival. Frequent flood, intense drought, storms and global warming  can directly harm animals. Change in climate  is destroying the places they live and wreak havoc on people’s livelihoods and communities.

Human Interference:

Wildlife is on threat due to close proximity to human settlements. Encroachment of land in Kaziranga and illegal entry of people from Bangladesh has made the lives of wild animals in danger. Dhabas and resorts in sensitive zones have also posed threats to the wildlife in Kaziranga.

The other factors are:

  • unplanned tourism
  • highway traffic,
  • spread of invasive species (mimosa) and livestock grazing.
