Kutch Great Indian Bustard Sanctuary

KUTCH GREAT INDIAN BUSTARD SANCTUARY

Great Indian Bustard is a large ground dwelling bird with long neck and ostrich like elongated legs. This endangered species with its neutral coloured coat blends with the semi-arid grassland, and provides a visual surprise to the visitors. Lesser Florican Bustards breed here while the flamboyant Macqueen’s Bustard is a winter visitor of this region. The sanctuary is considered a unique dwelling for these birds which are almost becoming extinct in other regions of the country. Other rare species of animals and birds are fellow habitants who make this sanctuary a treat for nature connoisseurs. Chinkaras, Jungle Cats, Nilgai and many other mammals inhabit this area, along with the Indian Wolf which proliferates in this untamed retreat.
