List of Tiger Reserves in India
 
There are 39 Tiger reserves in India which are governed by Project Tiger(1973). The largest Tiger Reserve in India, is the Nagarjunsagar-Srisailam Tiger Reserve of Andhra Pradesh. These 40,969 km2 (15,818 sq mi) of reserves are operated “to ensure maintenance of a viable population of the conservation dependent Bengal tigers in India for scientific, economic, aesthetic, cultural and ecological values and to preserve for all time areas of biological importance as a national heritage for the benefit, education and enjoyment of the people”. The landmark report, Status of the Tigers, Co-predators, and Prey in India, published by the National Tiger Conservation Authority, estimates only 1411 adult tigers in existence in the various Tiger Sanctuaries in India (plus uncensused tigers in the Sundarbans).
