Time to save tiger
Protect the National Animal from dying.
World Tiger Day (July 29), instituted in 2010 aims to galvanise public support in the wake of the dwindling population of the big cat. It is notable that 70 percent of the World's Tiger population is in India.
Other countries with the large population are Russia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Nepal. International Tiger's day saw the dwindling population of the species with only 3948 tigers left in the world. So I would like to recreate about the awareness of Tiger population in India. It is indeed a sorry state of affairs that a number of tigers are dying every year, thus reducing the Tiger population considerably.
In a recent study, it was revealed that nearly 93 tigers have died in Gujarat in the last 3 years, accounting for approximately 31 tigers in a year. The tiger population had depleted to 1411 in 2007. It increased to 1706 in 2011. And it rose to 2226 according to the last national tiger census in 2014. The death rate is very high and at this rate, the tiger population will go down. Out of the 93 deaths, 85 tigers died naturally and 8 tigers were killed by poachers. It is time to protect Tigers from dying. There are 50 tiger reserves in India having started out with nine when Project Tiger was launched in the year 1983.
To curb poaching
To check poaching, the Gujarat Government has decided to keep a check on vehicles entering the Gir Reserve and a close watch on activities and movement of labourers entering from other states. Some of the Tigers fell in open wells and arrangements is made to cover 9000 odd wells. Forest patrolling has been intensified to curtail poaching. Nearly 50 cubs died during the relevant period and 25 Female
Tigers died comparing 18 male Tigers. Save Tiger campaign should start in full earnest or else we can see extinction tigers totally during the next century. Constant GPS monitoring of the tiger cubs till they are adults will also ensure they survive long. Also if the
Save Tiger campaign is worked in full earnest, then extinction rate of tigers would reduce.
We have Kanha National Park which instills nostalgia because the landscape here is straight out of Rudyard Kipling`s Jungle Book. The
most famous one is the Jim Corbett National Park, Uttarakhand which provides a key differentiator would be the knowledgeable guide who would lead the tiger spotting expedition. Pench in Maharashtra- MP border is a home to the supermom tigress In Bandhavgarh National Park in MP we can plan a stay entwined with nature combined with a visit to the hills and the fort and a safari with a wildlife expert and enthusiast is in the offing.
Remembering Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan, we can stay on an organic farm stay near Ranthambore and go tiger sighting. As close to nature as it gets, best of the best is the Bandipur Tiger Reserve in Karnataka where you can stay in a jungle lodge here and go on a jeep safari. Keep that camera handy for a quick snap of the big cat in the wilderness. Notable among other reserve is Nagarhole Tiger Reserve in Karnataka and be part of tiger population and stay in the jungle and hear the growls and prowls of the wild as you sleep. To add to the tiger population we have Kaziranga Tiger Reserve in Assam.
Tholpetty Wildlife Sanctuary
Turning to wildlife sanctuary Tholpetty Wildlife Sanctuary in Kerala's Wayanad is a natural beauty in God's own country. Karnataka leads the list with 289 tigers followed by Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve with 215 in their ranks to boost our tiger population. Realising the decreasing number of tigers in the country, Project Tiger is an Indian Government initiative launched in 1983 by the Government of India during Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s tenure limit issues that lead to the reduction of tiger habitats. The project aims at ensuring that population of tigers is maintained. Some of the main habitats of India that fall under Project Tiger are the North East conservation unit, Sunderbans conservation unit, Sariska conservation unit and the Western Ghats conservation unit among various others. Let’s unite in our efforts to save the royal species for future by protecting their habitats and curbing illegal trade.
