Another notable sanctuary is the Saraswati Plantation Wild Life Sanctuary or the Seonsar Forest that spreads across an expanse of 44.53 sq. km and encompasses portions of the districts of districts of Kurukshetra and Kaithal. The dense jungles provide refuge to the Blue Peafowl, Rufous Treepie,Greater Coucal, Indian Grey Hornbill, Coppersmith Barbet and animals like the Wild Boar, Neelgai, Geedar, Langur (Presbytis entellus) and mischievous monkeys.
The Kaleswar Forests covered by dense Sal groves is also another feather in Haryan'a cap. The Haryana Government is deeply concerned about the state's declining natural resources. These exigencies prompted the state's erstwhile Chief Minister, Shri. Om Prakash Chauthala to set up wildlife sanctuaries and vulture breeding centers at Sirsa and Yamunanagar District.
