With arrival of monsoon, National Park across Rajasthan are now closed for three months from yesterday i.e. Monday, July01, 2013.
The parks have been closed from July 1 and will reopen for wildlife tourism from October 01, 2013 with no change in opening period as of now. The officers concerned and staffers under the Forest Department of Ranthambore and Sariska are ready with their enlisted plans to be carried out during this closing period along with taking up of afforestation and restoration works.
With onset of monsoon, mating period of wild animals begins. These four months of rainy season from July to October are considered most crucial for mating of wildlife animals. During these months the wild animals turn aggressive and need complete isolation. These aspects along with other maintenance works of the Forest Department are necessary for closing of parks across the State.
