No word on 5 of 45 tigers in Rajasthan
The NTCA, India’s top body for welfare of tigers, has sent a letter demanding a factual update from the state following complaint by wildlife activist Ajay Dubey, seeking an inquiry into the missing tigers. Rajasthan is home to 45 tigers. Reportedly, 5 tigers went missing in 2018. The state is yet to respond to a communiqué sent by NTCA on November 29, 2018. The Central Government had launched ‘Project Tiger’ in the early 1970s to save the big cats.
