A nature reserve is a protected area of significant importance to flora, fauna, or features of geological or other interest, protected and managed for conservation, and provides study or research opportunities. The Wildlife (Conservation) Act, of 1972 provides for the establishment of protected areas in India. Wildlife reserves in India are classified as IUCN Category IV protected areas. As of December 2020, 553 wildlife sanctuaries have been established in India covering an area of 119,776 km2 (46,246 square miles).  Project Tiger manages 51 tiger sanctuaries of particular importance to the conservation of Bengal tigers. The oldest bird sanctuary is Vedantangal Bird Sanctuary near Chennai in Tamil Nadu, established in 1796.  GK Capsule Free pdf - Download here. Also in Hindi  FREE GK EBook- Download Now.

Without these reserves, more animals would be endangered. In some ways, these reserves provide a landscape that wildlife really needs. Over time, it has also contributed to the conservation of these species.

2. Protect the landscape not just animals that are endangered. Lands such as mountains, and forests on hills, dunes, and plains are at similar risk because people are constantly destroying them for their own gain. Some landscapes are also at significant pollution risk. facing. As such, it is better preserved when preserved in wildlife reserve conditions. The nature reserve landscape is well protected from urbanization, pollution, and destruction.

3. Ecotourism, wildlife sanctuaries around the world are heavily involved in ecotourism. This gives many indigenous peoples and tribes easier access to jobs and economic development. These areas are also popular with tourists for nature walks and various other activities.

4. Conservation of biodiversity, wildlife sanctuaries play an important role in maintaining biodiversity. Some protected areas are involved in the following activities: generating and distributing electricity natural gardening farm set wine production animal grazing Together, these activities contribute to the conservation and conservation of biodiversity.

5. Protect history and culture, wildlife sanctuaries are often cultural hotspots. In addition to flora and fauna, these protected areas are dotted with various structures that help us understand how these areas came to be. They are therefore of great historical and cultural importance.

Prevent animal exploitation

Overexploitation is best defined as the very rapid harvesting of animals. The speed here is often faster than the animal's ability to recover. This is most common in fishing, but other groups of animals such as mammals, poultry or wild birds, and reptiles are also vulnerable to the same threat.

Why is it important to prevent animal exploitation?

Overexploitation is best defined as the very rapid harvesting of animals. The speed here is often faster than the animal's ability to recover. This is most common in fishing, but other groups of animals such as mammals, poultry or wild birds, and reptiles are also vulnerable to the same threat. The problem of overfishing is simple. When multiple individuals of a particular species are overfished, the species is endangered from which there is no recovery. One of the biggest cases of this problem is in fish. Over the past 100 years, certain fish species such as salmon and tuna have been overfished so heavily that the size of new fish plummeted. This is also affecting natural aquaculture. Wildlife sanctuaries work to protect these animals so that multiple species are well protected and effectively prevented from being overfished.
