About Corbett

Jim Corbett National Park is a national park located in the Nainital district of Uttarakhand state in India. The first national park in India, it was established in 1936 during the British Raj and named Hailey National Park after William Malcolm Hailey, the governor of the United Provinces. In 1956, nearly a decade after India's independence, it was renamed Jim Corbett National Park, named after the hunter and naturalist Jim Corbett, who played a leading role in its establishment and died a year earlier. Jim Corbett National Park was the first park to come under the Project Tiger initiative. Jim Corbett believed in the conservation of the ecosystem and wildlife, especially tigers, and this is the reason for the inauguration of the 'Save the Tigers' project in India. Jim Corbett National Park was chosen as the venue. It seeks to create awareness about damage to the environment and conservation efforts.

Jim Corbett National Park was established in 1936 as Hailey National Park, and is the oldest national park in India.

In 1954-55, it was renamed from Hailey National Park to Ramganga National Park, and then again in 1955-56 to Jim Corbett National Park. It was given its current name in honor of well-known author and wildlife conservationist Jim Corbett, who played a key role in its establishment. It is located in the Nainital district of Uttarakhand, and was named after Jim Corbett who played a key role in its establishment. The park was the first to come under the Project Tiger initiative, and contains sub-Himalayan belt geographical and ecological characteristics.
