 Tuesday, June 28, 2022 


The Palamu Tiger Reserve is thinking to come up with a tiger safari. Kumar Ashutosh, the chief conservator of forest and field director of the reserve said that they are sending a plan regarding this to the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) and after that. They have to ask for approval from the Central Zoo Authority (CZA). The project is at a budding phase, but however, they are strong-minded to make that happen.

Kumar Ashish, PTR’s deputy director (north) said that officials would probably visit Delhi in the second week of July for starting the official procedures at NTCA and CZA regarding the project.

The NTCA has a definite strategy for creation of tiger safari. One of the key necessities is at least of 40 hectares of land which should not be in the central part or the significant region of the reserve but in the buffer or fringe area.
Mr. Ashutosh said that they have more than the necessary land meeting the NTCA norms.

When asked about how they will administer the prey base for the tigers in the safari, he said that they will include two soft release centers for the cheetal at two of their chief grasslands at Teno and Lokaiyya. It will take care of that condition.

PTR has an area of more than 1100 sq kms, and has only one recorded tiger according to the last countrywide census in 2019. Mr. Ashutosh said that they will bring in tiger or tigers from other Indian reserves as required for this project.
