Thrilling experience of Lifetime
The vast geographical expanse and diverse topography and climatic conditions combine to make India a wildlife haven. The Himalayas, the Gangetic Plains, the Thar Desert, the Deccan Plateau, vast coastal areas and the North East regions of India are known for their unique and wonderful plant and animal life. With more than 89 National Parks, 489 Wildlife Sanctuaries and 13 Biosphere Reserves, India’s wildlife is truly incredible and fascinating. Like its wonderful culture and heritage, wildlife in India is simply unparalleled.
India is, thus, home to a rich variety of flora, fauna and avifauna that includes over 550 mammals, 30,000 insects, 2000 species and sub-species of birds and over 500 species of reptiles and amphibians including the deadly king cobras, pythons, crocodiles and monitor lizards. The majestic elephants, the prowling Bengal tigers and the Kingly Asiatic Lions are all part of the rich Indian wildlife.
The Indo-Burma Biodiversity Hotspot has been poorly explored scientifically to evaluate its herpetofauna (Amphibians and Reptiles). Though herpetofauna has been a subject of interest since the British colonial period by few British officials and scientists, it never received the desired attention. The northeast Indian hills and the Eastern Himalayas are considered to have tremendous diversity of herpetofauna. This is understandable through recent works on herpetofauna on the other side of the Indian border, i.e. Myanmar and south China. Being biogeographically similar, the region has many species to report, which are known from Myanmar and south China. Recent studies by few individual scientists have shown that the knowledge on diversity of this group is too low, as several new species have been described or being described. Further, a number of species of herpetofauna have been reported as ‘new record’ for the country. The Western Ghats Mountain range of south-western India is one of the last remaining stretches of the bio-diverse tropical wet evergreen rainforests in peninsular India and is home to a unique A total of 227 species of reptiles belonging to 20 families have been recorded from the assessment region of which 107 species (47.13%) are endemic to Western Ghats and 50 species We will create great expedition opportunity for people/ students who have interest in reptiles and endemic radiation of biota, which makes it a global biodiversity hotspot. (22.02%) are endemic to peninsular India herpetology.
