Fresh tiger census to begin in November [Simlipal]

 


The Times of India, May 13, 2011
BHUBANESWAR: Similipal and Satakosia are among the 41 protected areas in the country, where fresh tiger headcount will begin in November.

The ministry of environment and forest (MoEF) took this decision following a three-day workshop where experts deliberated on the Best Management Practices in Tiger Conservation'. A MoEF release said the November census, titled Phase IV of the National Tiger Estimation Programme', will initiate "intensive" annual monitoring of the big cats.

Significantly, the MoEF considers Similipal, one of the prime tiger reserves in the country, as "problematic". It is categorized with Indravati, Palamau and Nagarjunasagar-Srisailam reserves. Similipal has been in news for a host of reasons, including Maoist attacks, timber smuggling and poaching.
