The history of Dudhwa National Park dates back to the early 20th century when the area was used as a hunting ground by the British rulers of India. In 1958, the area was declared a wildlife sanctuary by the government of Uttar Pradesh, with the aim of protecting the swamp deer population, which was facing the threat of extinction. In 1977, the sanctuary was upgraded to a national park, and additional areas were added to the protected area. The park was also declared a tiger reserve in 1987, as the area was found to have a significant population of Bengal tigers.
Today, Dudhwa National Park is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including tigers, leopards, elephants, sloth bears, and over 450 species of birds. The park is also known for its unique ecosystem, which includes grasslands, swamps, and dense forests.

The Dudhwa Tiger Reserve in Uttar Pradesh has been ranked fourth among tiger
reserves in India, with a tiger population of 135. The total tiger population in
Uttar Pradesh has increased by 18.49% in four years, reaching 205 in 2022. However,
expert suggest the numbers are much higher as Dudhwa National Park has huge
population of sugarcane tigers. Uttar Pradesh produces nearly half of India’s
sugarcane (45.89% of the total). Tigers enters sugarcane fields tracking wild boars
as wild boars are among the favourite prey. Apart from this, tigresses with cubs
prefer cane fields as cover. They kill the boars and hide the prey easily to feed
Tiger counts are generally done in the jungle and not in the sugarcane fields. Hence
count is much higher.
