Jim Corbett National Park is a forested wildlife sanctuary of Nainital district in Uttarakhand, this wildlife abode is one of the pioneer projects to protect the majestic Bengal Tigers.Built in 1936 as the 'Hailey National Park', it was later renamed as the Ramganga National Park in an around 1955 and finally to Jim Corbett National Park in 1957 in the honour of the legendary hunter Jim Corbett.A colonel in the British Indian Army, Jim Corbett was one of the most renowned hunters of the colonial era. Though he was known for all his encounters with the man-eating beasts, he was often referred to a 'sadhu' or saint by the local villagers. Post retirement, he not only turned into a wildlife author, but also took active part in spreading as well as creating awareness among the common people. His efforts to protect the endangered Indian Tigers, his works on how to conserve these predators, and his passion towards the wildlife played an important role in the significant rise in the population of the Royal Bengal Tigers.
