Corbett National Park has captured the imagination of many with its diverse wildlife and breathtaking landscapes. The natural uniqueness of the area was recognised long ago and so in 1936 Corbett attained the distinction as the first national park to be established in mainland Asia.
Corbett National Park lies in two districts – Nainital and Pauri – in the hill state of Uttaranchal in northern India. It covers an area of 521 sq. km and together with the neighbouring Sonanadi Wildlife Sanctuary and Reserve Forest areas, forms the Corbett Tiger Reserve over 1288 sq. km.………………….[[continue reading]]
Golden-Mantled Tree Kangaroo
The golden-mantled tree kangaroo is just one of dozens of species discovered in late 2005 by a team of Indonesian, Australian, and U.S. scientists on the island of New Guinea.
The animal is the rarest arboreal, jungle-dwelling kangaroo in the world, the researchers say. This was the first time the mammal was found in Indonesia, making it only the second site in the world where the species is known to exist.
The kangaroo was discovered on an expedition in the Foja Mountains of Indonesia.
Tree kangaroos are relatives of the kangaroos and wallabies that we all know and have seen.
However they have adapted themselves to a life in the trees with exceptionally long tails and strong forelimbs. They can also get around by moving both their feet at the same time, whereas the kangaroos that live on the ground have to move both rear feet at the same time.
The Golden-mantled Tree-kangaroo (Dendrolagus pulcherrimus), is possibly the rarest tree kangeroo that is native and endemic to New Guinea.
It has chestnut brown short coat with a pale belly, and yellowish neck, cheeks and feet. A double golden stripe runs down its back. The tail is long and has pale rings.
You would have to be very lucky to see one for yourself in the wild.Reports suggests that it has become extinct over as much as 95% of its original range in the past 60 years.

Current Status Of Tigers In India
The National animal of India has been facing the danger of extinction from a considerable amount of time now.Efforts have been and are being taken to help improve the conditions of tigers in India by various projects undertaken by government and NGO’s keeping the issue alive in the heart of the masses.Despite this tiger poaching for its skin and body parts hasn’t stopped.
India holds over half the world’s tiger population. According to the latest tiger census report released in March, 2011 by the National Tiger Conservation Authority, the current tiger population estimated is 1,706 ( ranging between a minimum of 1,571 to a maximum of 1,875). The results include figures from 17 Indian states with a tiger population.
In 2008 the tiger population figure stood at 1,411. The report had classified the tiger occupied forests in India into 6 landscape complexes; namely – Shivalik-Gangetic Plains, Central Indian Landscape Complex Eastern Ghats, Western Ghats, North-Eastern Hills and Bhramaputra Plains, and Sunderbans.
Within the Shivalik-Gangetic plain landscape, it was reported that the tiger occupies 5080 km2 of forested habitats with an estimated population size of 297 (259 to 335) in six separate populations. In the Central Indian Landscape, tiger presence was then reported from 47,122 km2 (11.6 % of forests) with an estimated tiger population of 451 (347 to 564) distributed in 17 populations. The Eastern Ghat landscape complex had about 15,000 km2 of potential tiger habitat. Tigers occupied 7,772 km2 of forested habitats with an estimated population size of 53 (49 to 57). Tigers occupied 21,435 km2 of forests within……. [[....continue reading...]]
