Author : Sara Hasan

India, with its huge extension and diverse climate, is a splendid concoction of different religions, cultures, festivals, cuisines, ethnic diversity and languages. It is also one of the 17 countries in the world that has 3 mega-biodiversity hotspots, owing to its diverse climatic and topographical variations. It is the part of Indo-Malaya eco-zone and contains an amazing diversity of flora and fauna. India is home to over a thousand species of mammals, 1200 species of birds, 275 species of amphibians, 400 species of reptiles and thousands of species of fish, among others. Its national animal – the tiger represents the strength and grace in essence, while as the national bird with its multi-colored patterns symbolizes India's unity in multi-cultural diversity. The diverse environments in India include many endemic species from Hangul deer in the Himalayan reaches to the Indian Gharial and the Ganges Dolphin in the Ganges; from Markhor (Himalayan wild goat) to the one-horned Rhinoceroes in the north-east.
