Details:

Sariska, in Rajasthan, has been one of the most famous national parks in India, especially for its tigers. However, it had lost every single one of its tiger population to poachers a decade ago. The revelation was devastating. It sent shock waves not only throughout India but also abroad. After much discussions, apprehensions, arguments, legal battles and interference of the Prime Minister, a few tigers were shifted from Ranthambhore to Sariska. This was the first such experiment anywhere in the world which turned out to be a grand success. Sariska has now more than a dozen tigers.

This and several other such interesting and revealing experiments are discussed in this book by the one who was directly involved in these developments. The author, then field director of Sariska, describes his first-hand experiences in a most thrilling and revealing manner. The challenges faced by the author on creating waterholes for the wild animals, strengthening check posts to stop poaching, confrontations with villagers and local politicians and so on are described in detail.

The book will doubtlessly be a valuable addition to the existing thin wildlife literature. This will be a valuable possession for not only wildlife lovers and administrators, especially of national parks but also for environmental and social organisations as well as students.
