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.

 

Best
