This article describes HOW to edit a page, but editing this page will not create a new article! For information on how to create new articles see Wikitravel:How to start a new page.

You can edit any article on Wikitravel by clicking the edit link. You'll get a browser text-entry box with the current contents of the page formatted in Wiki markup.

You can modify the page however you want, but anything you add must be compatible with the Wikitravel copyleft. It helps the rest of us if you follow our policies and guidelines and manual of style, but don't let that stop you from plunging forward. It's more important that you add something useful to travellers than that you do it perfectly.

Dudhwa Tiger Reserve

Dudhwa is the last remnant of Terai region, one of the most endangered ecosystems on the planet. This complex ecosystem is a beautiful mosaic of dense Sal jungles, Grasslands and Swamps. Forty-seven species of mammals are found at Dudhwa; of these thirteen species are endangered. Dudhwa is home to a sizable tiger population. This place is the last refuge for critically endangered sub-species of the Swamp deer, Cervus duvauceli duvauceli (called Barasingha in Hindi). Out of the seven species of deer in India, five (swamp deer, sambar, barking deer, spotted deer and the hog deer) thrive at Dudhwa. The only place in the world inhabited by 5 species of deer. Critically Endangered species like the Bengal Florican and Hispid Hare have been rediscovered at Dudhwa. Besides 13 species of mammals, 9 species of birds and 11 species of reptiles & amphibians are Endangered (listed in Schedule-1 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act). The grasslands are the natural habitat of Indian one-horned Rhinoceros. About a hundred and fifty years ago the last rhino was hunted to extinction. Conservationists felt that Dudhwa could support a rhino population. In 1984, rhinos from Assam and Nepal were introduced. The rhinos are kept inside an electrical fence and their activities are strictly monitored. The family has increased to 17, despite the initial hiccups. The Park affects the water and climatic conditions of the region. This is absolutely essential for the human survival and agriculture (the main thrust of local economy).

LOCATION: The Dudhwa National Park lies in the sub-Himalayan region referred to as the Terai belt. The Park is tucked between India and Nepal in the Lakhimpur-Kheri District of the Indian State of Uttar Pradesh.

GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION: The Park lies between 28^18’N and 28^42’N latitudes and 80^28’E and 80^57’E longitudes.

DISTANCES: From Delhi (via Bareilly and Shahjehanpur): 450 km From Lucknow (via Sitapur and Lakhimpur): 250 km From Shahjehanpur: 110 km

Using the check boxes

If you are logged in to a user account there will be a This is a minor edit checkbox for marking your changes as "minor". The idea with this is that people reviewing page history or recent changes can filter out unimportant changes. It's up to you to determine what makes your changes "minor" -- usually, spelling corrections, grammar, or formatting changes are "minor", and changes to the real information on a page are not.

The Watch this article checkbox puts this article on your Watchlist. Any changes to the article, or to the article's talk page, by you or anyone else will show up in your Watchlist, so you can keep an eye on the article.

The default setting -- whether these checkboxes are checked or not by default -- can be set in your user Preferences.

Starting new pages

If you are starting a new page from scratch, please make use of our Article templates which help to organise the information on a page and give a consistent look. See Wikitravel:How to start a new page for more information.

Restoring previous article versions

If an editor changes or removes content from an article the old versions of the article are still available from the article's history. To view article history, click on the "View history" tab for any article, then click on the date for the revision that you are interested in. To revert the article to the specified revision, simply click on the "edit" tab while viewing the old version and then re-save the version. Alternately, if you just want to revert a single edit click on the "undo" link from an article's history next to the edit that is being reverted.
