What wildlife travellers can do to conserve wildlife?

India is an extremely diverse country, with landscapes varying from humid jungles and tropical rainforest to arid deserts and the mighty mountains. The variety of landscapes here accommodate and suit the thriving of an extraordinary wildlife, including tigers, lions, elephants, leopards, monkeys, rhinos, antelope, crocodiles, many reptile species and a kaleidoscopic variety of birdlife. In terms of numbers, India hosts some of the richest biodiversity in the world, including 397 mammal species, 1250 bird species, 460 reptile species, 240 species of amphibians and 2546 kinds of fish. The huge numbers here demonstrate the highest count of wildlife for any country in the world. The country has to its credit many national parks and wildlife reserves that protect such treasured wildlife from threats.
These wildlife reserves and national parks play a bigger role than just protecting wildlife. They offer wildlife enthusiasts and tourists an opportunity to witness rare and exotic wild species in their natural habitats. This eco friendly tourism initiative allows them to venture within jungles and witness the exotic wildlife. But this jungle safari does not just end with the spotting of wild species. It has a bigger cause and motive. This experiential journey is an enriching way to gain a new perspective about animals and contributes to the coexistence of mankind and wildlife.
Wildlife travellers have a big responsibility on their shoulders during a jungle tour to India. They observe the wild world, interpret their actions, capture them on camera and travel responsibly without disturbing the fragile flora and fauna. This way encourages tourists to adopt responsible practices while traveling through the forests. It is a duty of every wildlife tourist to throw no garbage in highly sensitive parks and sanctuaries.
Even during a jeep safari to a national park, tourists should make sure to obey the directions of wildlife guide. They are experts who know the forests from inside out and each of their direction is for tourist’s safety. Even when they see an exotic animal, it is prescribed not to make any noise like shout or howl. This is done to prevent disturbance for the wild species.

The traveller blogs and photographing wildlife species is also a great initiative to create awareness and restore wildlife. Being in close with nature, such travellers can convey their heartfelt feelings and contribute their bit towards wildlife conservation. During an India jungle tour, these travellers can also experience the best of nature and mankind in complete harmony. They can also opt for special India wildlife tour packages to receive the best of eco friendly tours in the country.

Spot The Wildlife In India Through India Jungle Tour

India is a home to thriving wildlife. Here, one can find a variety of wild animals, birds, amphibians and other species easily. This incredible wealth of wildlife makes India a favoured destination among masses. Also, this forms a prominent reason why wildlife enthusiasts visit the country. Tourists come here to observe the rich flora and fauna of the country and feel awed with their presence.
To cater to such tourists, Incredible India has created special regions dedicated to nurture and protect the wild species. There are numerous National parks, wildlife sanctuaries and bio-reserves that protect the diversity of wildlife based on its unique fauna and flora. At present, there are 89 national parks, 13 Bio reserves and 400+ wildlife sanctuaries across India that offer the most adventurous and awe-inspiring experience to the wildlife lovers.
The national parks and wildlife sanctuaries are the protected habitats for the wild, declared by the government of India as per the regulations from The World Conservation Union. The main aim of creating these separate natural ecosystems is to preserve the wildlife through conservation. Though the inherent essence is the same, still there are differences and similarities between a national park and a wildlife sanctuary, which we will follow below.
A wildlife sanctuary is a declared protected area, away from human interference. Tucked between dense jungles, this sanctuary doesn’t permit human activity. In fact, the premise of this wildlife reserve park doesn’t permit hunting of animals, thereby contributing to their conservation. Similarly, the trees within the location also come under the same protection act. But, tourists can surely come within the sanctuary premises for research, educational, inspirational, and recreational purposes.
The national park is also a protected area, having a defined boundary. The area under the national park is also a protected area which ensures safeguarding of the wildlife through certain rules. A visitor in order to visit the park needs permission in the form of ticket. Also, the visitors can only view the wildlife within the Jeep or other vehicle through defined trails and are not allowed to step down for any reason. Photography is permitted here but research and educational work can only be done with a prior permission. Not floral wealth can be sourced from here as it comes under governmental scrutiny. All these regulations make sure that the natural habitats of the wild fauna and flora are conserved with a minimum human interference.

The result of which is budding forests and blooming fauna like tigers, elephants, tigers, rhinoceros, leopards, birds, etc. Your visit to the India jungles also contributes to the conservation of precious wild species by generating awareness about the beauty and the wonder of rich India jungle tours and wildlife.
