Kaziranga

 

a national park in India, in Assam State. The park was founded in 1908 to prevent the extermination of the rhinoceros. The area was 52, 000 hectares in 1970. On the boggy left bank of the Brahmaputra River there is high grass and sparse tree and shrub vegetation. In 1966 there were about 400 rhinoceroses, 375 wild elephants, 550 buffalo, 20 gaurs, 250 marsh deer, 300 sambars, more than 4, 000 hog deer, 100 muntjacs, 30 bears, 20 tigers, and 12 leopards in Kaziranga. Elephants are used for trips in the park, which until 1968 was a preserve.
