grasslands of the reserve are the habitat of the largest kind
of Indian deer-the Swamp deer or the Barasingha, so called

it was upgraded to cover an area of 212 sq. km and was renamed
the Dudhwa Sanctuary. In 1977, the area was further extended
to include over 614 sq. km and was declared a National Park.

Project Tiger, the area of the Kishanpur Sanctuary was added
to create the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve. About 1800 Barasingha
