Why to work for the Sariska Tiger Reserve ?
Sariska is very different from the other wildlife sanctuaries in the country. Sariska Park is home to numerous carnivores and omnivores including Leopard, Wild Dog, Jungle Cat, Hyena, Jackal. These prey on the species of the other kind like the Sambar, Chital, Nilgai, Chausingha, Wild Boar and Langur. Sariska is also very well known for its large population of Rhesus Monkeys, which are found in large numbers around Talvriksh.The park has a rich population of migratory birds that are a treat to the eyes of the bird watchers and lovers. Birding in Sariska is always a pleasant experience as the chances of spotting these beautiful little creatures is quite frequent. It just doesn�t house the vast stretch of and with the living species ,but also has a historic ambience attached to it. It represents all cultures and traditions of the country.

Why Save the Tiger?
Tigers occupy the pinnacle of the food chain and a healthy tiger population is an indicator of the well-being of the whole forest. Throughout evolution predators have had a regulatory influence on the population sizes of other species; it is thanks to carnivores such as tigers that the number of herbivores is kept in check. In turn the number of predators is fostered by the quantity of prey. The populations can therefore only fluctuate between certain limits because of this feedback mechanism.

With the number of herbivores under control but not depleted the forest vegetation is likely to thrive-provided humans do not over -exploit it. Seeds will be dispersed but new growth will not be prevented by excessive grazing pressure. Healthy vegetation protects and nourishes the soil, preventing erosion. The soil filters and purifies the rainwater and safe-guards the water table. Many forests are important catchments areas for rivers, upon which many species including human beings depend.

Species at the top of the food chain are generally larger and require more space than other animals particularly if they are territorial. Conserving such species in the wild protects the habitat of many other animals as well as safeguarding the essential ecological processes such as water and nutrient cycling. Thus the tiger acts as the guardian of many other creatures.
