Good news for all wildlife lovers!

The Kumbhalgarh sanctuary is soon to be converted into a national park to boost tourism and conserve highly endangered species in the area. “Areas of Pali, Udaipur and Rajsamand districts will be covered under the park which is also a tourist destination due to famous Kumbhalgarh fort and Ranakpur Jain temples in the area. The Cabinet gave its nod to make Kumbhalgarh sanctuary, home to a very large variety of wildlife, including some highly endangered species, as another national park in the state.

The wildlife in the area includes wolf, leopard, sloth bear, hyena, jackal, jungle cat, sambhar, nilgai, four-horned antelope, chinkara and hare. Areas covered under the park will be conserved to protect wildlife and environment.
