Sariska was notified as a wildlife sanctuary in 1955. It was made a National park in 1982 and was declared as a Tiger reserve in 1978. As per the census carried out in February 2005, Tigers were extinct at this Tiger reserve, possibly due to poaching. Soon tigers were successfully relocated to this Tiger reserve from Ranthambore National Park. Currently, there are 13 tigers in Sariska; 7 females, 2 males and 4 cubs.
