About Us

Bandipur National Park (BNP) is one of India's best known protected areas and is an important Project Tiger reserve. It is located in the Chamarajanagar district of southern Karnataka in South India. The park stretches over 874 square kilometres (337 sq mi), protecting the wildlife of Karnataka.

Bandipur is part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve.

Together with the adjoining Nagarhole National Park (643 km2 or 248 sq mi), Mudumalai National Park (320 km2 or 120 sq mi) and Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary (344 km2 or 133 sq mi), it forms the largest protected area in Southern India, totalling 2,183 km2 (843 sq mi). It is notable as the home to around 70 Bengal tigers and over 3000 Indian elephants (in 1997 [1]).

Causes of worry

For farmers in the 200 villages along the Bandipur forest periphery, the National Park is a vast pasture for grazing cattle and for collection of firewood and other forest produce. The reserve holds nearly 1.50 lakh cattle. The Nugu wildlife sanctuary and Himavad Gopalaswamy range located in the north-west of the park are the most cattle infested. There are fears of possible transmission of diseases from cattle to wildlife. In 1968, large numbers of gaur were killed in an outbreak of rinderpest.

Lantana bush, introduced by the British in the 19th century in tea gardens, has spread rapidly at the cost of other valuable herbs and saplings. This bush is thorny, attracts mosquitoes, is not eaten by any herbivores and its rapid spread has caused other species of fauna – which is staple food for wild life – to vanish. Rapid spread of Parthenium (Parthenium hysterophorus) has severely damaged the bio-diversity, and the typical landscape of this beautiful jungle is making way for this invasive weed. Elephants, which traditionally migrate from dry to moist zones, now increasingly come into contact with human habitations and farms are often damaged. Sugarcane crops are particularly attractive to them. Of late, the road has been a major concern as speeding vehicles have killed many wild animals in spite of frequent warnings to travelers from the forest department officials
