With over 29% forest reserve, Jharkhand has 11 wildlife sanctuaries. Illegal trades in wild animals like pangolin, tortoises and parakeets are common in the state. 

Besides, Jharkhand is treated as a transit by illegal traders and its routes are used to transport wildlife animals to Bangladesh and different states of the country, the officials said. 

The decision to display the list of endangered animals was taken during an inter-agency coordination meeting between central and state enforcement agencies here. The meeting was organized by the Wildlife Crime Control Bureau (WCCB).
