Chapramari Wildlife Sanctuary
Chapramari Wildlife Sanctuary (formerly Chapramari Wildlife Reserve, is close to the Gorumara National Park. Chapramari is about 30 kilometres from Chalsa and Lataguri in northern West Bengal, India. The total coverage of the forest is 960 hectares.
In 1896, an imperial forest-service administrator D.H.E. Sander first sent a proposal to the-then English-dominated Government of India that Chapramari could be developed into a tourism centre. The area was declared a national reserve forest in 1895 under the Indian Forest Act. In 1939, the name Chapramari Wildlife Reserve came to be used, while the Government of India, in 1998, gave it the status of a national wildlife sanctuary. The name of the region comes from ‘Chapra’, a variety of small fishes found in northern Bengal, and ‘Mari’, meaning ‘abundance’. Chapramari receives waters from the Teesta, the Neora, and the Murti
