In 1992, Pench was included under the umbrella of "Project Tiger" as the 19th Project Tiger Reserve. The Pench National Park is very rich in fauna and a number of endangered species have made it their habitat.

The Pench Tiger Reserve and its neighborhood is the original setting of Rudyard Kipling's most famous work, The Jungle Book and to recognize this the name of the Pench Sanctuary has been changed to "Mowgli Pench Sanctuary".
