Sultanpur National Park

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change notified the Sultanpur National Park as a Ramsar Site to boost wildlife protection and tourism in the region. It is one of the two sites to receive this recognition in Haryana, with the other being the Bhindawas Wildlife Sanctuary – the manmade freshwater wetland.
Located in the northern state of Haryana, the site supports more than 220 species of waterbirds at critical stages of their life cycles. More than 10 of these species are globally threatened, including the lapwing, Egyptian Vulture, Saker Falcon, PallasÂ’s Fish Eagle and Black-bellied Tern.
