Corbett National Park is an important piece of our environmental heritage. This precious landscape is not only a reminder of how green, clean and beautiful our world once was; it is also the corner stone of Indias conservation history. It was here in 1936 that the first National Park of India was established. In 1973, when Project Tiger was launched, Dhikala in Corbett National Park was chosen as the venue for the unveiling of that historic event. A collection of some awe-inspiring environment and wildlife images and well-researched complementing text makes Corbett National Park—Domain of the Wild, a visual delight and a good informative read.The second part gives a glimpse of the beauty that is Corbett; with its magnificent wildlife from the largest land mammals to the smallest insects. Corbett is home to the Bengal tiger, the Asian elephant, four species of deer, varied smaller mammals, reptiles and a large number of bird species. The last section looks at the threats to our precious environment and wildlife and ends with a note on Indias responsibility as a 'global citizen and custodian of the worlds largest population of not only tigers, but also of many other species threatened worldwide. Printed Pages: 188.
