The number of sanctuaries and national parks of Rajasthan seems almost unending; and yet every such diversified ecosystem has something new to offer. Set amidst a backdrop, which resembles a typical savanna, the Tal Chhapar Sanctuary is located in the Churu district of North-west Rajasthan, popularly known as the Shekhawati Region. The sanctuary plays host to one of the most elegant species of antelope, the Black Buck.
The sanctuary, like the Desert National Park, presents a lucid example of a desert ecosystem, situated right at the heart of the Thar Desert. The place attires itself in a habiliment of a tropical grassland or in other words, a typical savanna. The most common bird species found in the region are- Harriers, Eastern Imperial Eagle, Tawny Eagle, Short -ToedEagle, sparrow and many more.
Not only the Black Buck, the Mothiya grass is also a fascinating attraction of this sanctuary, which derives its name from its English translation of pearls. The region is characterized by dry and arid climatic conditions, with scarcity of rainfall.
The sanctuary treasures the most varied forms of avifauna and animal life as well. A visit to the sanctuary is undoubtedly a treat to the eyes.
