Abstract:

Prior to the advent of COVID-19, ecotourism was one of the fastest expanding economic sectors. It's an entirely different perspective on the world. Ecotourism is defined as a responsible visit to a natural region that protects the environment, promotes the well-being of the local community, and includes interpretation and education for both tourists and personnel.

The Sariska National Park is located in Alwar District of Rajasthan. It is world famous for Royal Bengal Tigers. Other wild animals like Stripped Hyena, Python, Palm civet, Jackal, Slot bear, monkeys and various species of birds also in abundance.

In today's globe, the word "ecotourism" is the most often used. It's an entirely new way of looking at the world. Ecotourism is a responsible visit to a natural region that protects the environment, promotes the well-being of the local community, and includes interpretation and education for both guests and personnel.

On the one hand, ecotourism generated cash that aided conservation efforts while also providing jobs for locals. Ecotourism, on the other hand, is responsible for changes in wild animal behaviour and physiology, habitat destruction, biological invasion, changes in wild animal feeding habits, and, in certain cases, disease transmission. Non-native species such as cats and dogs are frequently introduced by ecotourists and those working in the hospitality industry. They have the potential to be disastrous for natural prey species. Ecotourists have the ability to spread potentially deadly diseases and parasites.

The present paper is about present status of ecotourism in Sariska National Park, its probable impacts on wildlife, some suggestions to make ecotourism beneficial deal for wildlife.
