Diversity runs through India. India is not just home to 18 major languages, 8 major religions, countless dialects, castes, tribes and ethnicities, but when it comes to diversity in ecology – India ranks high under all parameters. With only 2.4% of the world's land area, India accounts for 7-8% of all recorded species, including over 45,000 species of plants and 91,000 species of animals- the biodiversity of India is something to be reckoned with.
The wildlife sanctuaries in India
