Though a large percentage of the total area of Rajasthan is desert and there is little forest cover, Rajasthan has a rich and variety of animal and plant species. The state has over 2000 plant species, 87 species of mammals, 114 species of fish, over 500 species of birds and about 81 species of reptiles.
Due to vast size and latitudinal variations above the sea level of 1,700m there is a varied vegetation. From semi green forests which are witnessed in the region of Mount Abu to dry grasslands of the desert near Jaisalmer and Jodhpur, from dry deciduous thorn forest of Aravali to wetlands of Bharatpur; the varied topography constructs such different natural habitats for many endangered species and attracts many migratory birds.
