The roar of tigers will soon be heard in Motichur-Dholkhand area of Rajaji Tiger Reserve. The campaign to shift tiger in this area has now reached a decisive stage. Six tigers are to be shifted here from the Buffett Terai Western Region of Corbett Tiger Reserve, whose marking work is going on these days. According to the Chief Wildlife Protector of the state, JS Suhag, these tigers will be brought in two-three numbers in three phases. In the first phase, two tigers will be shifted by 15 September.
There are 38 tigers in the Rajaji Tiger Reserve, but these are limited to the Chila and Gauhari ranges. Motichur-Dholkhand, another part of the reserve, has a presence of two tigers for a long time. In view of this, it was planned to shift tigers in this area. Now it is becoming increasingly practiced. Chief Wildlife Protector JS Suhag says that the tigers will be shifted here from Terai Western, the buffer zone of Corbett. A team led by scientists from Wildlife Institute of India is involved in the identification of tigers.
He informed that in the first phase, two tigers will be shifted to this area by September 15. These will be monitored continuously through radio callers. After 15 September, four tigers will be shifted to the next stages.
