it was awesome to witness the success story of Panna National Park. T1 – the queen of Panna – is in great shape with her 4th litter of 2 cubs. The park has some tremendous potential and is an excellent tiger habitat. Photographers should watch out for Panna – another excellent location with great photographic potential.
Deeptiwildlifetraveler posted a topic in Indian wildlifeHello, It is bit old story but still I would like to share with you all as I didnot see any one has posted about it. Being a tiger lover every one should about the situation of Tigers. Taking pictures and doing safari are always our first priorities but very few care about actual life of tigers. In india according to Wildlife protection society of India the only 1706 tigers have left now. Have you heard about problems which had happened in Panna national park?? Panna National Park is a National park located in Panna and chattarpur districts of Madhya Pradesh in India. Panna was given the Award of Excellence in 2007 as the best maintained national park of India by the Ministry of govt. of India. In 2009 officials have noticed that tiger population had eliminated becauseof poaching and careless work of forest officers. The propblem of loosing tigers from this area has been repoted several times but no body cared about it. Only One male tiger left but after some time he was also disapperared. It was shame for a forest dept. to declair that the park which had over 40 tigers had now no tiger left. The Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) approved a proposal to translocate two tigers and two tigresses to the reserve. One female each from Bandhavgarh National Park (coded T1) and Kanha National Park (T2) were translocated to Panna Tiger Reserve. A tiger male, coded T3, was brought from Pench Tiger Reserve but strayed out of the park shortly thereafter, in November 2009. The tiger started walking towards its home in Pench National Park, indicating homing instinct. It moved steadily through human dominated landscape without causing any conflict. Forest department staff tracked it continuously for over a month and finally brought it back to the Panna Tiger Reserve. It then settled well, established territory and started mating. The tigress, T1, translocated from Bandhavgarh National Park, gave birth to four cubs in April 2010 of which 2 survive till date. The second tigress, T2, translocated from Kanha National Park gave birth to four cubs several months later and all four survive till date. A third tigress, coded T4, an orphaned cub was reintroduced to Panna in March 2011.She learnt hunting skills with the help of the male and mated with him. Her sister T5 was released in Panna in November 2011. Both have settled well. Thus five tigers and around 10 cubs of up to 2 years are settled in Panna Tiger Reserve at present and their progress is being regularly monitored by the Forest Department. Now one more Tigeress got shifter to Panna national park from Pench national park in Jan 2014 - T6, a tigress from the Pench National Park, was released in the Panna Tiger Reserve on Wednesday. This marks the beginning of phase 2 of the reintroduction of tigers into Panna, which had lost all its big cats in 2009. The Tigress is about three years old, and began the long journey from Pench on MP’s border with Maharashtra to Panna in the north on Tuesday, wearing a radio collar and travelling tranquillised in a special carriage. The first phase of relocation and subsequent breeding had resulted in a gender imbalance in Panna. T6 came alone, another female will follow. T6 will be Panna’s seventh female. The park has 9 males and 8 cubs. I hope you enjoy the Article. Some information I got from sources.
