Jim Corbett was a legendary hunter, tracker, conservationist,
naturalist and author who lived in the Kumon region of Northern India.
He was called upon by the local authorities for tracking & hunting “man eating” tigers and leopards in the early 20th century.
Corbett used his influence to persuade the government to establish a national reserve for the endangered Royal Bengal Tiger. A renowned conservationist and photographer, Jim Corbett was honoured by the Indian Government by naming this particular tiger reserve, one of India’s most famous tiger reserves, after him – “Jim Corbett National Park”.
A variety of animals including tigers, leopards, wild elephants along with over 375 species of birds inhabit the “Jim Corbett National Part”
