At Melghat’s Semadoh, the Satpuda tigress spotted

 Tuesday, March 1, 2022 


On January 31st, a four-year-old tigress from Madhya Pradesh’s Satpuda Tiger Reserve reached Melghat Tiger Reserve’s Ambabarwa Wildlife Sanctuary in Buldhana district. However, it has moved further to the tourism zone of the tiger reserve in Semadoh.

On Saturday, by a group of tourists, the tigress was first sighted. Semadoh tourism zone is part of the Melghat Wildlife Sanctuary and is located close to the ecotourism complex. Although the sighting of tigers in Melghat is quite common, but the presence of the tigress in the tourism zone has thrilled visitors more than anything. The animal must have travelled over 330kms from where it started from Satpuda.

To quote Divya Bharathi M, deputy conservator of forests (DyCF), Sipna wildlife division, “We are monitoring the tigress and have deployed 15-20 camera traps. The tigress must have crossed inviolate core zones of Akot and Gugamal divisions to reach Semadoh. The density of tigers is already high in both the wildlife divisions and perhaps this might be one of the prime reasons. We hope the animal settles down in the Melghat sanctuary area.”
