Tiger Conservation Efforts – Project Tiger, etc.

Country gets its first tiger repository

  1. News: The Wildlife Institute of India (WII) at Dehradun will house the country’s first repository on tigers, under its new Tiger Cell
  2. WII & National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) did the work on tiger conservation and population estimation, and in the process have generated a huge database
  3. Tracking: If a tiger skin is recovered at a place then a properly maintained database can be used to check where the tiger might have come from
  4. Development-conservation debate: When a project needs environmental clearance, the spatial data can be used to overlay the project plan on maps and check whether the project would interfere with wildlife habitats that must not be disturbed
