Kanha National Park

Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh is one of the largest National Parks and Tiger Reserves in India and it is also known as Kanha Tiger Reserve, Kanha-Kisli National Park.

  Initially Kanha was established in 1933 as a wildlife sanctuary, but it was formed to a National Park in 1955. Later it became an important Tiger Reserve in 1974. Currently the total area of this National Park is 940 Square Kilometre, but it was a tough project for the Indian Government to make this park a Tiger Reserve due to reliance of tribal people to the forest. Baiga Tribal people had lived in many villages which are located within the area of Kanha, so resettling them had been a challenge. However, it was possible to make corridors for tigers for tigers and other animals to enhance wildlife and the population of tiger.
