Rajasthan gets Third Tiger Reserve

Standard

Royal Rajasthan, Roaring Rajasthan!

More of the big cats will be glorifying the timeless heritage of Rajasthan. Rajasthan will home a third tiger reserve in the Mukundra Hills, as notified by the Govt. of Rajasthan.

tiger-in-ranthambore-national-park

Covering the four districts of Kota, Bundi, Chittorgarh and Jhalawar.Its reserve area will spread over 759 sq km. Nearly 417 sq km have been earmarked as the core tiger habitat, while 342.82 sq km has been notified as the buffer zone where human interference is prohibited.

The other two tiger reserves of Ranthambore and Sariska have a core area nearly thrice this size.

Mukundra Hills are also connected with the Ranthambore National Park, located in the state’s Sawai Madhopur district.

Moreover, the core area of the Mukundra reserve currently has six villages, two of which are uninhabited. Eventually all these villages will have to be relocated funded by the NTCA (National Tiger Conservation Authority). The sanctuary currently has wolves, sloth bear, chinkaras and leopards!
Officials added that at a later stage, tigers will be relocated from Ranthambore reserve so as to provide optimum space for the majestic dwellings.

The objective was to link this to Ranthambore so as to let the tigers that stray from the park come and breed here. It was the next best forest after Ranthambore for rehabilitation of tigers.
