Wild Ass Sanctuary

Wild Ass Sanctuary Surendranagar

 

About the location: This 4953-sq-km sanctuary covers a chunk of the parched land of the Little Rann and is the home of the only remaining population of the chestnut-coloured Indian wild ass (khur), as well as bluebulls, blackbuck and chinkara. There’s also a huge bird population from October to March (this is one of the few areas in India where flamingos breed in the wild). About 2500 khurs live in the sanctuary, surviving off the flat, grass-covered expanses or islands, known as bets, which rise up to around 3m. These remarkable, notoriously untamable creatures are capable of running at an average speed of 50km/h for long distances.

Brief History: The wildlife sanctuary of Little Rann was established in 1972 and came under the Wildlife Protection Act in the same year.
