On National Endangered Species Day 2022, Here are 10 endangered animal species in India

Posted by Samni Dhiman on

Conservationists and animal lovers unite: National Endangered Species Day is May 20. This is a day to reflect on the diminishing populations of various animals and to collaborate to save them. Conservation of the environment did not acquire pace until the mid-nineteenth century. By creating a foundation for protection, America's Endangered Species Act of 1973 sparked both domestic and international conservation.

Every year on the third Friday in May, National Endangered Species Day is observed across the country to promote awareness about endangered species of flora and fauna. This day serves as a reminder of how many animal species are on the threat of collapse, as well as how climate change is disrupting the once-peaceful ecosystem.

This day was created to remind us of how precarious the survival of some animals, plants, and insects is - and, more importantly, to remind us to learn why it's so critical to protect endangered species from further harm.

On National Endangered Species Day 

Bengal Tiger

The Bengal tiger is appropriately referred to as the 'Big Cat,' as it is the national animal of two major countries - India and Bangladesh. India is home to over 70% of the world's wild tigers. Due to human intervention and poaching cases, tigers are rapidly vanishing. Outside of the reserves, tigers' natural habitat - tropical evergreen forests, deciduous forests, mangrove swamps, thorn forests, and grass jungles – has practically vanished. In India, there are 48 tiger reserves in all. The Jim Corbett National Park, on the other hand, has piqued the interest of significant wildlife enthusiasts. In India, there are now 2,226 tigers

Asiatic Lion

The Gir sanctuary in Gujarat, India, is a great place to see Asiatic Lions. It's worth noting that it's the world's second largest cat species, and it's only found in India. Many people visit this national park for a jungle safari in order to see this royal animal.

Black Buck

The Black Buck, often known as the Indian antelope, is the state animal of the Indian states of Punjab, Haryana, and Andhra Pradesh. This animal is thought to be naïve and gullible due to its spiral horns and beautiful colour. Visit Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand, Velavadar Blackbuck National Park in Gujarat, and Kanha National Park in Uttar Pradesh to see these animals (Madhya Pradesh).

Snow Leopard

Snow Leopards are one of the most unusual species found in India's Himalayan areas, with long and thick fur and brown yellowish to smoky grey skin. The animal's appealing long tail makes it easy to spot. These can be found in abundance at the Dibang Wildlife Sanctuary in Arunachal Pradesh, the Himalayan National Park in Himachal Pradesh, and the Nanda Devi National Park in Himachal Pradesh (Uttarakhand).

Kashmir Red Stag (Hangul)

This kind of deer, which has a bright rump patch and a brown coat, can be found in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, mainly in the areas of Overa-Aru, Sind Valley, and the woods of Bhaderwah and Kishtwar. The Kashmir Red Stag can also be found in the Rajparian Wildlife Sanctuary or Dachigam National Park in Kashmir's Anantnag district.

Nilgiri Tahr

The Nilgiri tahr is a threatened species of mountain ungulate that lives in the Western Ghats' tropical rainforest. Stocky with a bristly mane, curved horns, and coarse and short fur, the endangered species has a stocky coat with a bristly mane, curved horns, and coarse and short fur. The Nilgiri Tahr, the state animal of Tamil Nadu, is under serious peril in the Western Ghats.

Greater One-Horned Rhinoceros

The International Union for Conservation of Nature lists the Greater One-Horned Rhinoceros, also known as the Indian Rhinoceros, as a vulnerable species. The mammal is found in India and Nepal, especially in the Himalayan foothills. Horn poaching is a major factor in the reduction of the Indian Rhinoceros population. Since 1975, the population of Greater One-Horned Rhinoceros has risen dramatically, although the species remains under threat due to an increase in hunting instances. The Kaziranga National Park in India, which contains at least half of the overall population, is the most important reserve for this species.

Lion Tailed Macaque

The Lion-tailed Macaque, which can be found in the Western Ghats of South India, attracts attention with its unique look and habits. It gets its name from the attractive tail that gives it a lion-like appearance. This mammal can be found in Kerala's Silent Valley National Park, Karnataka's Sirsi-Honnavara rainforests, and Tamil Nadu's Kalakkad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve.

Red Panda

The Red Panda is a little mammal that spends most of its time sleeping and playing in bamboo branches. This animal, sometimes known as the red-cat bear, can be found in the woods of Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim. In addition, West Bengal's Khangchendzonga and Namdapha National Parks can be visited to observe its playing behaviour.
