This wondrous land India, is a haven of flora, fauna and avifauna. The
legacy of bountiful wild animals includes 550 mammals, 30,000 insects
and 2000 species and sub-species of birds, with over 500 species of
reptiles and amphibians including the deadly king cobras, pythons,
crocodiles and monitor lizards. Due to its diverse topography and
varying climatic conditions, India is the second largest country on the
planet to have such diverse life forms. Here is your chance to unravel
the mysteries of Indian wildlife.
India's treasures of flora and
fauna are fast expanding, it won't be long before dry patches and
barren lands replace green jungles. India's mighty Himalayan are
dotted with thick tropical forests and coniferous woodlands. Kerala
and Andaman Islands, the coastal regions of India are blessed with
the most affluent rain forests arrayed with the stretches of coconut
trees. The Sunderbans
forests where the Ganga and the Brahmaputra rivers finish their last
lap on land before flowing into the Bay of Bengal. Thar Desert of
India shows vegetation of short and stout trees stunted by the
scorching sun. The plant kingdom is not the only endangered species.
India's rich fauna is known the world over, the great Bengal Tiger,
The great Asiatic Lion, the great one-horned-rhino, the great Indian
elephant and the long list of unending wildlife is the great source
of attraction for the tourist from all over the globe.
India - a country of diverse
wildlife is home to a large variety of birds and animals. There is a
splendid assortment of colourful birds, with different species found
only in certain parts of the country. Here we present a collection
of more than 20 types of birds, each famous for its special
features: Blue Jay, Sarus Crane, White Ibis, Rosy Pelican, Pied
Kingfisher and many more...
With the excessive consumerism
of an ever-swelling population, it is no longer possible to dismiss
terms like ‘ecology’ and ‘environment’. The need
for conservation of the environment and forests had already occurred
to Emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century B.C., and yet never
before has the call for conservation been more desperate than it is
today. The notions of growth, progress and modernisation are to be
carefully weighed for their pros and cons, in order to avoid
inheriting ecological disasters, gas leaks, inundating dams, nuclear
fallouts, bombs…the list is unending.
