Conservation History of Sunderbans National Park

"A country grows in history not only because of the heroism of its troops on the field of battle; it grows also when it turns to justice and to right for the conservation of its interests" The Conservation History of Sunderbans National Park began with the formation of this national park in 1985. Since the number of tigers was decreasing constantly, the ecological balance was not being maintained. If there is a decrease in the number of predators then the herbivores would increase constantly and consume the entire natural flora. So, there would be an abnormality in nature.

In order to ensure balance in nature a project for the conservation of tigers was launched. Especially the Royal Bengal Tigers were given special attention because they were the excellently bedecked royal creatures that embellished the forest. We remember Blake's Tiger, bright and strong, illuminating the scenario of the forest, "Tiger, Tiger burning bright/In the forest at the night".

Since Sunderbans abounds in Royal Bengal Tigers the Government of Indian declared Sunderbans as a National Park in the year 1985. Previously Sunderbans was acknowledged as the core of the Tiger Project in India. The Conservation History of Sunderbans thus dates back to several decades.

Sunderbans in located in the largest delta of the world. This delta has been created by the Ganga and the Brahmaputra. Numerous animals like crocodiles, Monkeys, Chital and Royal Bengal Tigers. Fox, Jungle Cat, Indian Porpoise, Open Billed Stork and also the Wild Ibis are found in the Sunderbans Delta. They are an integral part of the conservation History of this National Park.

Apart from these there are also the Common Kingfishers, Caspian Terns, Brahmini Kites, Oriental Hobby and Brown Fish Owl. The best time to pack up your bags and give a visit to Sunderbans in from December to February.
