Introduction to the Corbett National Park in Uttaranchal : The Corbett National Park had been the erstwhile hunting preserve of the Maharaja of Rewa, and a natural home to the elegant white tigers. The encroachments of the white tigers created an ecological imbalance with the slow diminishing of cattle and human population. Subsequently, man started killing this wild beast. With progressing time, this animal began to be the chief interest of hunters, thereby depleting their numbers, alarmingly. Afterwards the Government felt it necessary to preserve these wild animals from poachers and allotted space for their natural subsistence. The Corbett National Park is one amongst them. This National Park is named after the famous hunter, Jim Corbett, who visited the place during his hunting expeditions. his famous book, Temple Tiger speaks of his confrontation with a man eating leopard, which he finally killed. Said to cause a lot of nuisance amongst the villagers, the Panar leopard and Champawat Tiger had killed 836 villagers! These fatal incidents came to an end with the advent of Jim Corbett, who managed to kill them.
