The panoramic rhapsodies of the picturesque state of Haryana are accentuated by its diverse natural heritage. Haryana Wildlife is renown all across the globe for their variety and splendor. The wildlife tours of Haryana are also quite a rage among tourists.

The undisputed monarch of Haryana's wildlife reserves is the Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary, located on the Delhi - Jaipur highway. The sanctuary, founded by India's eminent ornithologist, Dr. Salim Ali, houses variegated species of migratory as well as resident birds. The migratory birds fly from as far as Siberia and the other European countries. Over 100 species of birds that include darters, egrets, shovellers, gadwell and geese, teals, kingfishers, lapwings, sandpipers, demoiselle cranes and other aquatic birds flock to the reserve

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.
