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.
