The Life of Jim Corbett 2023

Back to wall

Jim Corbett National Park, a wildlife sanctuary located in Uttarakhand, is named after Edward James Corbett, a renowned naturalist and conservationist. Born on the 25th of July 1875 in Nainital, James Corbett had a unique fascination for forests and wildlife from a very young age. Renowned as “Shikari,” he dedicated himself to eliminating man-eating animals that posed a threat to human lives. His legacy includes successfully eliminating nineteen tigers and fourteen leopards responsible for over twelve hundred human deaths.

Corbett’s commitment to protecting communities extended beyond hunting. He owned a village and aided the villagers in multiple horticultural experiments to yield better results. These experiments included sowing banana seeds and even large kernel maize seeds from Africa. Interestingly, he even had a tiger species named after him in the village. After India’s independence, he and his sister returned to Nyeni, Kenya, where they continued to write about the declining number of tigers and other wildlife.

The present-day Jim Corbett National Park was originally established as the Hailey National Park in 1936. Subsequently, it underwent a name change to Ramganga National Park in 1954. In 1955, the park was finally bestowed with the name “Jim Corbett National Park” in recognition of Jim Corbett’s significant contributions to wildlife conservation.

Jim Corbett, a distinguished naturalist and conservationist, played a pivotal role in bringing the government’s attention to the forest area, eventually establishing it as a protected reserve. Today, Jim Corbett National Park, cherished by citizens for its rich biodiversity and lush greenery, serves as a model for successful wildlife conservation, boasting the highest population of tigers at Jim Corbett in India.
