Mangalore Wildlife, Bird Sanctuaries & National Parks

A wildlife refuge, also called a wildlife sanctuary, is a naturally occurring sanctuary, such as an island, that provides protection for species from hunting, predation or competition; it is a protected area, a geographic territory within which wildlife is protected. Such wildlife refuges are generally officially designated territories. It is created by government legislation, publicly or privately owned.

A bird sanctuary is a place that birds are attracted to. Literally, it is a sanctuary for the birds. Bird sanctuaries can be found indoors or outdoors. Indoor sanctuaries are mostly enclosed, and the outdoor ones are open. Zoos sometimes have bird sanctuaries.

A national park is a park in use for conservation purposes. Often it is a reserve of natural, semi-natural, or developed land that a sovereign state declares or owns. Although individual nations designate their own national parks differently, there is a common idea: the conservation of wild nature for posterity and as a symbol of national pride.
