It is quite relevant that these days we humans are thinking very hard about saving wildlife and using forest and wildlife of marine products that is the necessity to us sustainably. The humankind thoroughly depends upon nature for the every surviving day of their dear livelihood. But as we are getting more and more industry-minded day by day and taking a monstrous amount of treasure out of nature for our own use, we are not realizing that we are killing the nature around us slowly. That is why the governments and nature caring people have concentrated on creating the unraveled biosphere into wildlife sanctuaries for quite a while. India is one of the top ten countries with the largest part of forests inside them and has 22% forest still nurturing in her body which is increasing every year.

Not only the outnumbered population of the One-Horned Rhinos, Pobitora is also famous for South Asian fresh water Dolphins. Called to be the Gangetic Dolphins originally, these beautiful creatures almost have vanished from sight in the river Ganga because of its immeasurable water pollution.
