A tracker-turned-conservationist, Jim Corbett was a renowned writer and wildlife expert. Born on 25 July 1875, he was appointed a colonel in the British Indian Armyand was often requested by the government of the United Province (modern-day Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand) to hunt man-eaters and leopards that spread terror in the Garhwal and Kumaon region. An avid photographer, Corbett’s books, particularly Man-eaters of Kumaon and Jungle Lore achieved international critical acclaim and earned global recognition. As a conservationist, Corbett was instrumental in speading awareness and drawing up programmes for the protection of India’s wildlife. He also played a key role in the creation of a national reserve for the Bengal tiger. As a homage to his tireless contribution to wildlifeconversation and welfare, the national reserve was renamed Jim Corbett National Park in 1957, two years after Corbett passed away in 1955.
