5. Which Indian wildlife sanctuaries and Tiger Reserve have been chosen as World Heritage Site by UNESCO?
 Top

Manas Tiger Reserve

6.What can I do to save the tiger ?
 Top

In saving the tiger from extinction you are not just saving one animal species but a whole ecosystem.The tiger is the King of all the forests of Asia and to save him you have to save everything he rules over, in other words,his kingdom. The tiger depends on the forest and in turn the forest depends on the tiger. If the tiger becomes extinct, all other flora and fauna will quickly go the same way. The tiger is the finest symbol of the Earth's natural heritage, one that has been admired and respected for a millennia. If we can not stop ourselves from destroying this most magnificent creature on this planet,then surely we can not save ourselves from the same fate. Please say "NO" to tiger parts and tiger skin , save water. Always protect the flora and fauna around you and be kind to animals.
7. Are elephant and jeep safaris possible in Indian wildlife Tiger Reserve ?
 Top

Elephant and jeep safaris are possible in most of the tropical wildlife sanctuaries of India. In fact, elephants are the most preferred and convenient way of watching wildlife species in their natural surroundings. It is easier for the pachyderms to navigate around in the thick bushes and give you the closest views of your favorite
.
8. Are there any specialized wildlife tour packages for Indian wildlife sanctuaries?
 Top
