In this article we will discuss Sanctuary

The Indian Board for Wild Life has defined a sanctuary as, ‘An area where killing,
hunting, shooting or capturing of any species of bird or animal is prohibited except by or under the control of highest authority in the department responsible for the management of the sanctuary and whose boundaries and character should be sacrosanct as far as possible. By June 1992 India had 416 sanctuaries. The Board has further clarified the position by stating that while the management of sanctuaries does not involve suspension or restriction
of normal forest operation, it is desirable to aside a completely sacrosanct area within a sanctuary to be known as ‘Abhyaranya’. It has also indicated that sanctuaries should be made accessible to the public.
