The project is aimed at studying the Keoladeo Ghana National Park (Bharatpur) and assessing its current status in order to find out how it is attracting large number of visitors leading to earning of higher revenue than various other bird sanctuaries located in and around Delhi (e.g. Okhla Bird Sanctuary, Asola Wildlife Sanctuary). This study would then be extended to the aforementioned wildlife sanctuaries in Delhi, understand their current status and will assess and identify existing shortcomings and problems due to which the sanctuaries in Delhi are not able to receive large number of visitors.
The project and its findings would help in understanding the impact of urbanization on wildlife sanctuaries, develop strategies for successful management of protected areas and will help in better Natural Resource Management of the wildlife sanctuaries located in Delhi. The outcome of the study will be focused on replicating the successful Keoladeo Ghana National Park management model in the Asola Wildlife Sanctuary through GIS-based modeling.
