Tiger Reserves In India
Being in the list of 13 countries of tiger range, India has the maximum number of source sites of tigers in wild. To preserve the national animal, India has always prioritized the tiger protection. A step in this direction was taken in 70s, with the launch of Project Tiger. This project has made the protection of the Indian Tiger a realistic goal with a varied range of initiatives. The Project is unique in its range of the habitats brought under the protection all over India. With the start of Project Tiger the number of tiger reserves in India has been raised from 9 in 1973 to 39 in 2010. The number of tiger reserves in India in today’s date is said to be 42 with more in pipeline in the time coming. Current estimates show that more than 50,000 square kilo meters of area is covered under these reserves all around the country under the aegis of National Tiger Conservation Authority of India.
The Indian tiger has been protected in its natural habitat for cultural, economical and more importantly ecological purposes in the tiger reserves across nation. The biologically vital species of tiger is preserved in its natural area of living as a national heritage in order to preserve the biome of the area. Nagarjunasagar-Srisailam Tiger reserve in the state of Andhra Pradesh is largest among these reserves in India. Scientific methods like Radio Telemetry etc is being used in these reserves and the results of the protection are excellent as was declared by the All India Tiger Estimation in recently concluded time. The basic idea of the tiger reserve under the Project Tiger is to develop a core-buffer-corridor strategy. The core area of the reserve is used for wildlife conservation and the remaining area is used as buffer for other activities.
Some of the prominent Tiger Reserves in India are Sunderbans Tiger Reserve in West Bengal, Kaziranaga Tiger Reserve & Manas Tiger Reserve in Assam, Namdapha Tiger Reserve in Andhra Pradesh, Periyar Tiger Reserve in Kerala, Pradesh Kanha Reserve in Maharashtra and Corbett Tiger Reserve in Uttarakhand.
It is estimated by Government authorities that tiger population in India in the year 2010 was more than 1700. There was a clear indication that this number of population was only possibly due to the tiger reserves spread across country and thus these reserves need to be increased in number.
