India's first national park was established in 1936, now known as jim corbett national park in Uttarakhand. In 1972, India enacted the Wildlife Protection Act 35 (4) and Project Tiger in 1973 to safeguard the habitats of conservation reliant species.
Today there are 106 national parks in India. In Madhya Pradesh only, there are 9 national parks and 6 tiger reserves. It is considered as a wildlife hotspot because of it's large tiger population.
