Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, the park officially attained National Park status in 1974, marking a pivotal shift in its conservation narrative.

The transition to a National Park in 1974 reinforced Kaziranga’s ecological significance, emphasizing comprehensive protection and management practices. Today, Kaziranga stands not just as a haven for wildlife but as a symbol of successful conservation efforts and unwavering dedication to ecological preservation.
