The term "Wild Life" means the untamed and undomesticated animals like tigers, lions, leopards and many more living a free life in forests, Valleys or hills. Preservation of wildlife is the grounded approach to protect or rescue endangered wild species and their habitats in order to prevent their extinction. In other words, it forms a part of the animal wealth of a country.

Man has hunted wild animals for food, for adventure and for the greed of money. This has resulted in the disappearance of many species of wildlife. Man kills tigers, lions, snakes, deer, crocodiles for their skin and elephants for their tusks. The greed has increased so much that many species are extinct. People use animals as an object of entertainment in circuses where animals are abused and exploited in a variety of form to amuse humans. Deforestation is also a cause of the disappearance of wild animals.

Efforts were made to preserve wildlife. Wild Life Protection Act was passed in 1972 in India. It provides protection to the wild species of animals, birds, and plants which are facing the danger of disappearance. Two of the largest non-government conservation organizations like the Bombay Natural History Society(BNHS) and the World Wild Fund for Nature(WWF) India is also doing praiseworthy work in this field.

It is with the aim of preserving wildlife many sanctuaries have been established in India. Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh is an ideal home for wild animals like tigers, jackals, barasingha(swamp deer). Gir National Park in Gujarat was established to protect lions, antelopes, and leopards. Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand, Dudhwa National Park in Uttar Pradesh, Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary in Rajasthan, Raiganj Wildlife Sanctuary in West Bengal are some of these examples.

Wildlife must need to be preserved because some wild animals work as natural scavengers. They keep the environment free from pollution. Some of these animals are sources of drugs like insulin and anti-venom. The sanctuaries are the source of great income because tourists from within and outside the country are instinctively attracted to them.

Wild animals and birds are highly useful to mankind. Their disappearance will create a void in nature. Wildlife Week is celebrated every year in the first week of October in India to promote the preservation of wildlife so that the coming generations will be able to see these species. Every year World Wildlife Day is celebrated and raises awareness of the world's wild fauna and flora. In short, we should save the wildlife, the glory of our country from extinction.
