is famous for its BIG FIVE - the one horned Rhino, Royal Bengal Tiger, Leopard, Asiatic Lion and Elephant.
All five are on the poaching demand lists:
There are about 1,500 rhinos in Kaziranga alone and recently six of them were brutally killed in the park.
There are less than 1,500 tigers in all of India and we have lost over 800 tigers in just the last decade - 36 last year alone to poachers.
We have lost 18 lions in just the last four months and close to 11 last year.
We have lost twice the number of leopards to tigers.
Elephants too have been poached and even run over by speeding trains, which ply through their corrodors.
There are poor protection mechanisms in place.
We have vacancies in all our parks and no fresh guards have been recruited.
They are also poorly paid with no equipment.
The promised wildlife crime bureau is yet to take off.
Trade in endangered species is the second largest trade after narcotics.
