to be a duck shooting zone in the pre-colonial era. It was after independence that the area was notified as a bird sanctuary. Further conservation efforts were made by Dr. Salim Ali, the original birdman of India, who helped it gain the status of a national park in 1982. Today, as a montage of dry grasslands, woodlands, woodland swamps and wetlands, it is home to over 375 bird species, 379 species of flora, 50 species of fish and many other animals
