Manas National Park


100 Years of People's Participation in Conservation


"On a gentle slaps in the facilities of the Himalayas, where wooded hills give way to alluvial grasslands and tropical forests, the Manas sanctuary is home to a great variety of wildlife, including many endangered species. Such as the Tiger, Pygmy Hog, Indian Rhinoceros and Indian Elephants."

2005 is the centenary year of the formation of Manas, a period during which it has added a number of features to its cap to become.....
  • UNESCO world heritage site
  • National park
  • Tiger reserve
  • Elephant reserve
  • Biosphere reserve
  • Important bird area
All this has been possible only because of the conservation tradition of the bodos living around Manas.

Manas National Park is a trans-frontier world heritage site sharing its borders with the Royal Manas National Park of Bhutan and is home to some of the rarest species of flora and fauna in the world.

The first community ecotourism initiative in northeast India.

The Manas Maozigendri Ecotourism Society (MMES), the organisation behind this initiative, has transformed the concept of ecological conservation and community participation in the process through.......
  • Systematic approach towards ecological conservation
  • Construction of communication links to the ecotourism area like roads, bridges etc.
  • Setting up of regular monitoring groups comprising of volunteers to monitor endangered species.
  • Setting of subsidiary sources of revenue like handloom unit, handicraft unit, sericulture unit, cooperative farming unit and livestock rearing unit.

But perhaps the most important achievement of MMES has been to absorb former insugents and poachers into its ranks as conservation volunteers and these people are now torchbearers for the local community in ushering in peace and a more stable conservation environment in the area.
