=> Recently, the government has issued a notification to make Orang National Park more than thrice its existing size.
About Orang National park:
=> It is located on the north bank of the Brahmaputra River in the Darrang and Sonitpur districts of Assam, India.
=> It was established as a sanctuary in 1985 and declared a National Park on 13 April 1999.
=> It is also known as the mini Kaziranga National Park (IUCN site) since the two parks have a similar landscape made up of marshes, streams and grasslands and are inhabited by the Great Indian One-Horned Rhinoceros.
=> It is also known as the gavial or the fish-eating crocodile.
=> It is longest among all living crocodilians
=> Threats: Loss of habitat because of sand mining and conversion to agriculture, depletion of fish resources and detrimental fishing.
=> Odisha is the only State in India having all three species of crocodiles (gharial, mugger and saltwater crocodiles).
=> Gharial reserves of India: Uttar Pradesh (Ghaghara river), Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. Today, their major population occurs in three tributaries of the Ganga River: the Chambal and the Girwa Rivers in India and the Rapti-Narayani River in Nepal.
