About Kailadevi Wildlife Sanctuary (KWS) 

  • The Kailadevi Wildlife Sanctuary (KWS) is the northern extension of the Ranthamboree National Park and falls within the buffer zone of the Ranthamboree Tiger Reserve. The sanctuary is located in the Karauli district of Rajasthan and falls within the Karauli and Sapotra blocks. 
  • The sanctuary is bounded on the west by the river Banas and on the south by the river Chambal. 
  • Kailadevi Wildlife Sanctuary has become a popular reference among environmentalists and conservationists for the community-initiated forest protection committees (referred to as kulhadi bandh panchayats) that are operational in the area. These forest protection committees prevent the carrying of axes into the forests, a symbol of protecting the forests.
