Corbett National Park
Jim Corbett National Park is the oldest national park in India. It is named after the hunter turned conservationist Jim Corbett who played a key role in its establishment. The park was established in 1936 as Hailey National Park. The park acts as a protected area for the critically endangered Bengal tiger of India.
In 1907, the British administration considered the possibility of creating a game reserve here and established a reserve area known as Hailey National Park. The reserve was renamed in 1954–55 as Ramganga National Park and was again renamed in 1955–56 as Corbett National Park giving tribute to well-known author and wildlife conservationist Jim Corbett who played a major role for its establishment.
