Odisha plan to develop second tiger habitat

With the Royal Bengal tiger Kanha and tigress Sundari brought from Madhya Pradesh coming closer to each other in Satkosia forest area; good news is expected from the couple very soon.

The forest department will plan to start translocation process in the second phase to have one more pair of tigers if the ‘man-eating’ Sundari will not pose any threat to human habitats in Satkosia forest.

After Satkosia, the next target is Mahanadi Wildlife Division where the big cats will be released, said Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife) Sandeep Tripathy.

Currently, the focus is on Satkosia Tiger Reserve where the forest department achieved success in making efforts to establish relationship between two wild tigers. The mating may bring good news by New Year, he said.

In view of tiger scare among residents inside Satkosia forest and to facilitate the tigers for free movement, the department is planning to relocate the villagers in core area of Satkosia to other locations, where they will be provided houses.
