India has a diverse climate and topography; different kinds of forests, with a minimum of ten distinct bio-geographical areas, there are many as well as three biodiversity hotspots on the planet's surface. Because other native habitats have lost their native status, the forest currently houses the majority of terrestrial species. There is a vast network of protected areas in place, including 514 wildlife sanctuaries, there are 99 national parks in the United States, 18 biosphere reserves are included in the project, and several holy groves managed by native groups. Due to increased people in the world demands, land use changes, and the introduction of invasive alien species, forest degradation and biodiversity loss persist despite a favorable forest policy and a strong regulatory framework. The extent and loss of biodiversity must be constantly monitored, and individuals must be encouraged to join in large-scale biodiversity conservation rehabilitation.
