[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Kukrail Reserve Forest is located in Indranagar. It a good sight seeing place and if you are amazed with crocodiles and gharials in natural beauty.In Uttar Pradesh, these reptilians are found in the Ramganga, Suheli, Girwa and Chambal rivers. The female gharial lays eggs in April by digging holes on the river banks.

The idea of setting up a breeding center for the endangered Crocodile & Gharial species came after a study by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, UNO in 1975 which estimated that there were only 300 crocodile left in the open rivers of Uttar Pradesh. Center at Kukrail came up in the year 1978, which was funded by the Uttar Pradesh forest department in collaboration Ministry of Environment and Forests India. This effort marked the beginning of state government's efforts towards conservation of crocodiles & gharials at a time when only 300 of them had been left. Sorce: Wikipedia
