Ranthambore: The Land of Tigers
Ranthambore National park is the first and largest park of Rajasthan.
It is located at a distance of 397 km from the national capital Delhi, and 190 km from Jaipur the capital of Rajasthan state.
It is spread over 1334 square kilometers between the Aravali and Vindhyachal mountain ranges. In this, a tiger project is going on in 392 square kilometers.
All types of wildlife are available in this park, rich in natural wealth. But mainly it is known for the conservation of tigers. That is why it is also called The Land of Tigers.
Why is the conservation of tigers necessary?
Tiger is called the king of the forest.
A tiger depends on wild animals for its food. Normally he hunts one animal in 5 days. Thus he hunts about 70 animals in a whole year.
Dense forests, where natural sources of water are available, are the natural habitat of wild animals.
Therefore the tiger protects a large forest area so that a sufficient number of wild animals can grow in that area.
Forests are necessary for our life also. Because we need oxygen for our life. Trees present in forests absorb the toxic gases released by us and in return, they give us pure oxygen.
Since the tiger protects the forests and biodiversity, he helps us in saving the environment.

That is why the conservation of tigers is necessary for our existence also.
Unfortunately, we have foolishly killed a large number of tigers in the past. Now the situation is such that the threat of existence has arisen in front of the tiger.
Now is the time to save the tiger. The Government of India is running tiger projects for the conservation of the tiger.
This is the reason that in the last few years there has been an increase in the number of tigers.
Therefore, the growth of tigers is a matter of great happiness for nature lovers.
Save the Tiger, Save the Nature.
