In an unprecedented move, the National Tiger Conservation Authority has proposed to monitor Tigers using Drones fitted with night vision cameras, faster speed, longer batteries, and better landing capacities in 5 different national parks in India. They have already tested the same in Panna National Parks quite successfully. Now the other 4 parks which will be brought under the Drones are: Corbett, Sunderbans, Kaziranga, and Sathyamangalam. Once successful this will be launched in other Tiger reserves too. 3 Biologists and 3 Engineers per Drone are being trained for the same. A final approval is awaited from the Ministry of Defence. Hopefully by the end of this year this technology will be used to track the Tigers, and keep poachers at bay.

The caption might sound unrealistic, but the ground reality today is, that there are some serious efforts in the direction. The captioned statement is made by our new Environment Minister. Honestly, i am not sure if this will happen, but i quite like the confidence, intent, and positivity in his approach There are things beginning to happen on the ground, and i would like to believe the old saying, that, "We should aim for the moon, because even if we miss we will be among the stars". So, even if the population does not reach the intended double mark, but it will be at a good high.

Sharad Kumar Vats posted a topic in Indian wildlifeIt is never an easy feeling when you hear about your favorite Tiger dying for reasons beyond anyone's control. One tends to develop a bond with Tigers whom you have been seeing for some seasons. Seems as if those Tigers also know you. Then one fine day you hear about a Tiger found injured, and despite best efforts by the forest department he passes away. This is exactly what happened with Bheema a big male Tiger in Kanha. He got into a mortal combat with another of my favorite Tiger who also happens to be currently the biggest Tiger of central India, the Umarpani male and it proved to be his last fight. Tigers are born to fight, they live to fight and fight to live. And they die fighting. Please read the below link to know about Bheema the big male Tiger of Kanha. http://naturesafariindia.com/blog/bheema-peaceful-warrior-kanha-national-park-passes-away/ Best Wishes Sharad Vats
