Considered sacred by the Bishnois, concerted efforts by this community have saved them from poaching, with their numbers rising beyond 4000 in the sanctuary.

    Said to be one of the largest free-ranging populations of the black buck, it is also considered a successful effort in conservation. The same efforts have extended to the blue bull which also roams this region as fearlessly as the black buck.
