Corbett Monitoring & Research Jim Corbett National Park

Corbett has aptly been described as the property of the Roar, Trumpet and Song. It represents a scene of incredible charm. Corbett had the proud division of being chosen as the venue for the inauguration of Project Tiger in India. The rich biodiversity of the conserve is partly recognized to the diversity of habitat found here. Due to the locality of the Reserve in the foothills of the Central Himalayas both Himalayan and peninsular flora and fauna is found in the Reserve.
The grasslands are locally recognized as Chaurs, are limited. The largest grassland is the Dhikala Chaur. Some of the best grasslands counting the famous Buxar Chaur and the Beri Chaur got submerged under the Ramganga reservoir in 1974. The areas made accessible as a result of the relocation of The villages, Dhara, Jhirna and Kothirau in 1994 are being developed into grasslands through habitat management.
The Ramganga reservoir which formed in 1974 stretches in excess of a area of approximately 82 sq. km. with one half every in Sonanadi Wildlife Sanctuary and Corbett National Park. The Corbett Tiger Reserve has a enormous diversity of fauna on account of habitation range. It is tremendously rich in avifauna. Zoological analysis of India has traced over 585 species of inhabitant and migratory birds here.

Wildlife Population Estimation

Counting wild animals is vital to monitor their population. In Corbett an annual census is carried Tiger pugmarks are used to estimate population out during summers to estimate the numbers of prominent animal species to understand trends and determine the success of management practices on wildlife. Dedicated counting of tigers is done every fourth year as part of an All India Tiger Census under Project Tiger. The accurate estimation of wildlife population density is difficult and requires a considerable investment of wealth and time. It is very much important to monitor the population of exiting wild animals. For example, the population may be a valued game species (e.g. tigers, deer) that is being managed on a sustained-yield basis.

Research

Research plays an important role in the management of Corbett and adds value to existing scientific knowledge. Research institutions are encouraged to carry out surveys and long-term studies on threatened species and the Corbett ecosystem. Such studies generate outputs that are relevant not only to Corbett but have a wider application vis-à-vis other protected areas.
