History Of Eravikulam National Park
The park was established as a hunting preserve for the colonial planters and was co-owned by Rajamalai and Eravikulam. After the British rule, it was converted into a sanctuary to protect the Nilgiri Tahr. Before 1971, the park was managed by the authority of Kanan Devan Hills Produce Company independently. After that, the Government of Kerala officially acquired control over the area under the Resumption of Lands Act, 1971. In the year 1975, in order to protect the endangered Nilgiri tahr, the area was declared as the Eravikulam-Rajamala Wildlife Sanctuary. Later, in the year 1978, the sanctuary was declared a National Park. Eventually, with a turn of events, major portions of the land were distributed for the cultivation of coffee and cinchona.
