Buxa Tiger Reserve is a tiger reserve in northern West Bengal, India, covering an area of 760 km2. In altitude, it ranges from 60 m in the Gangetic Plains to 1,750 m bordering the Himalayas in the north. At least 284 bird species inhabit the reserve, along with mammals like the Asian elephant, gaur, Sambar deer, clouded leopard, Indian leopard, and Bengal tiger. Local people living in 37 villages inside the reserve depend on the collection of non-timber forest products. The fragile "Terai Eco-System" constitutes a part of this reserve. The Phibsoo Wildlife Sanctuary of Bhutan is contiguous to the north of Buxa Tiger Reserve. Manas National Park lies on the east of Buxa Tiger Reserve. Buxa Tiger Reserve, thus, serves as an international corridor for Asian elephant migration.
