Edward James ?Jim? Corbett (25 July 1875?19 April 1955) was an Anglo-Indian hunter and tracker-turned conservationist, author and naturalist, famous for hunting a large number of man-eating tigers and leopards in India. He played a key role in creating a national reserve for the endangered Bengal tiger in what is now Uttarakhand. In 1957, the national park was renamed Jim Corbett National Park in his honour.
