Tiger, Tiger!

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

Mad­hya Pradesh, In­dia, the world's first white tiger sanc­tu­ary has been re­cently opened. Lo­cated at Mukund­pur, 20 kilo­me­tres from Rewa city, the 25-hectare sanc­tu­ary is a big cat res­cue fa­cil­ity which will pro­vide qual­ity care to the res­cued white tigers in a nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment. Cur­rently, the sanc­tu­ary is home to only one white tiger, Vind­hya, while more tigers will be soon added to the sanc­tu­ary. In Rewa, the white tiger is a part of the city's legacy. Ly­ing on the verge of ex­tinc­tion, the to­tal pop­u­la­tion of tigers has been re­duced to 3,200 in the wild.
