Two tigers travel miles to relocate

Times of India, New Delhi, September 4, 2014

 

The region's tigers migrate great distances overcoming obstacles like canals and dangers like roads, rail lines, and open wells, mentions a latest report of the Wildlife Conservation Trust. The report cited two instances wherein a tiger - christened as Prince - that was photographed as a cub in May 2010 was camera trapped in west Pench on March 26, 2014 during estimation exercise. This means it travelled about 80km to shift to a new habitat. Similarly Bajirao - a tiger from Kalmeshwar travelled about 20 km - to relocate to Bor. These two instances underscore the need for preserving corridors to maintain genetic connectivity of increasingly fragmented tiger population.
