With the growing population, global warming and unethical poaching, humans have unleashed carnage on nature and other living species. We can see a sheer decline in forest covers, breaking of mountains (due to excessive mining and construction work), several species have gone into extinction including the White Northern male Rhino, which died in 2018.
Due to all these reasons and more national parks came into existence in India. That was the effort to preserve the wildlife and nature. One of them is Ranthambore National Park. It came into being in the year 1955, thanks to the government of India back then. In the year 1973, it was declared the tiger reserve sanctuary.
Ranthambore not just marks as an important place for Indian history and the royal fort and palaces, but also for its Tiger Reserve National Park. As we all know, Tigers have been on the radar of poachers. They sell their skin, nails, and teeth to smugglers or smuggle them outside and within the country to earn millions. This shortcut to make money has blinded many. Following which the government and environmentalists have to work really hard to maintain the balance. Deployment of policemen, forest officers, cameras and other arrangements are carried out. And lots of taxpayers’ money also goes into it.
Ranthambore is a huge tourist spot there’s no denying that. It houses one of the most beautiful creatures which draw the attention of the visitors from different countries. They go on a jungle safari in an open gypsy with a gunman and a guide. It’s a destination for families comprising of kids, adults and elderly people. They can learn a lot about how wildlife animals co-exist together in such adverse conditions. You start loving these animals and nature after learning about them so closely. One can even call it an education tour with nature, because without knowing one can’t work on preserving it. Lives of humans are directly related to them. The cycle of life will be hampered that needs to be understood by the young minds.
The Ranthambore National Park is situated in the Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan. It covers the area of 392 Sq Km. It is located at a distance of 155 km from the capital city of Jaipur, which takes around two and a half hours by train.
