Dudhwa tiger reserve is rhinos' new home

The Times of India, 21st July, 2014

Lucknow Dudhwa tiger reserve in Uttar Pradesh's lakhimpur Kheri district has been made ready to be new home for rhinoceros. At present the entire rhino population of the reserve is sheltered in a fenced 27 sq km area in Sonaripur range of the reserve.

There are at least 30 odd rhinos in Dudhwa. Some of these rhinos can now be shifted to a new 14 sq km fenced area in the adjacent range of the reserve. Sources said that the shifting would be done under the guidance of the wildlife Institute of India (WII) after getting permission from the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA). Putting all rhinos in one place puts them at a risk of being wiped out in a single calamity. sources said that the young ones will be transferred to the new locations.
