What is National Park?

A National Park is a place that is strictly protected with the aim of improving wildlife and biodiversity. In National Parks, it is against the law to engage in any kind of development, forestry, poaching, hunting, or grazing on agricultural land. If a location has sufficient ecological, geomorphologic, and natural significance, the Indian government may designate it as a national park. Indian wildlife is home to over 100 internationally renowned national parks. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature, or IUCN, has designated each of these national parks as belonging to the second category of protected places. Each state has at least one national park that showcases the vibrant local flora and animals.
