The State Government of Uttarakhand has banned elephant safaris and the commercial use of elephants in Jim Corbett National Park. In a new move, tourists now could not enjoy the joy rides on the back of an elephant. It has been enacted to prevent cruelty on animals by loading huge loads on their back to earn money.
This might upset the tourists of Jim Corbett National Park to an extent, but they would understand the problem that the animals had to face every day. They cannot roam independently; they have to follow the orders of the owners. Otherwise, they have to face ill-treatment from their owners.
Tourists from across the globe have also appreciated the step taken by the state government. They said that the most needful thing, which should be taken in action, the Indian Government Authority cannot keep muted in these scenarios. Elephants often get hurt while carrying the tourists on their back in the Jim Corbett park and get severe injuries. Animals need proper awareness and conservation by the forest department, rather than using them for our benefit.
They also shared their views by saying that these elephants should be given proper medical treatment and should be freed to roam in the jungles in their natural habitat. They are innocent beasts, and we should not harm them at any cost. An open gypsy and canter buses would only excavate the safaris. At present, their 200 safaris allowed them to venture within the park, escorting tourists to the inner core of the jungles. For that, you have to obtain permits from the forest department by Jim Corbett Safari Booking.
Wildlife has always boosted the Indian Tourism industry by generating a bigger revenue from this source. Jim Corbett national park is the most famous wildlife sanctuary whose history has been written in golden letters. The park got its name from the legendary hunter- Jim Corbett, whose untiring efforts have led to establishing this tiger reserve. His only goal was to save the tigers from illegal hunting to increase the numbers of Royal Bengal Tigers in India.
The forest department carries out these efforts, the state government authorities, and other private NGOs, to conserve the wild beasts from extinction forever. India shelters 70% of the wildlife beats by creating these wildlife sanctuaries across the country. Indian Government is also taking financial help from foreign countries to renovate the park and providing an excellent environment to the beasts.
