KAZIRANGA – Our Natural Inheritance - A Case Study Of A Success Story

An Indian rhinoceros lies dead with its horn missing at Kaziranga National Park

Kaziranga and the great Indian one-horned rhinoceros are synonymous. The very name ‘Kaziranga’ inspires awe, pride and deep respect in the minds and hearts of the Assamese people. This floodplain is a child of the Brahmaputra river. Here Rhinoceros unicornis is making its last stand in a mosaic of incredible ecosystems that fall in the Indomalayan Realm.

The book traces the conservation history of the Park. It also highlights the threats faced by the rhino today and reminds us of those who lived and died to protect the wild beauty of Kaziranga. In Kaziranga, you can hear the trumpet of elephants, the call of the hoolock gibbon, and the display of amorous Bengal Floricans.
