Abstract

The study was conducted to know the wildlife diversity of Madhupur National Park of Bangladesh from June 2014 to March 2015. A total of 151 species of wildlife (amphibians to mammals) belonging to 23 orders and 62 families were recorded which covers 16.41% of total wildlife species in our country. Among them 10 (7%) were amphibians, 15 (10%) reptiles, 111 (73%) birds and 15 (10%) mammals while 65 (43.05%) were very common, 41 (27.16%) common, 25 (16.55%) uncommon and 20 (13.24%) were rare. Among the 20 species of migratory birds, 15 (75%) were winter visitors and 5 (25%) summer visitors. The forests and other wildlife habitats in and around Madhupur National Park are decreasing rapidly due to illegal logging, land conversion for agriculture and human settlements.
