New Tiger cubs spotted at Ranthambore Tiger Reserve

Close on the heels of the birth of some new cubs at the Ranthambore tiger reserve in the recent past, there are some more good news in store.

A trap camera caught three new born cubs recently at the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve. This has been possible due to creation of conductive habitat for tigers and conservation measures. The photo here shows the tigress T26 (Sharmelee) with her cub in the Mai Dang region which is her territory. The cub seems to be about three months old. This photograph was taken through a camera trap installed by the forest department. Though the photograph shows only one cub the evidence of more cubs is being verified through camera traps and pug marks.

Pug marks of a cub have also been seen with T11 (Chiroli tigress) in Chiroli area as well as a cub was seen with a tigress in Bakola area.

Seems the coming safari season has a lot of offer – more exciting pictures, frivolity of little cubs and some real action from the big cat family of the Jungle!!

National Parks in Rajasthan closed for Monsoon

With arrival of monsoon, National Park across Rajasthan will remain closed for three months from today i.e. Monday, July01, 2013.

The parks will be closing from July 1 and will reopen for wildlife tourism from October 01, 2013 with no change in opening period. The officers concerned and staffers under the Forest Department of Ranthambore and Sariska are ready with their enlisted plans to be carried out during this closing period along with taking up of afforestation and restoration works.

With onset of monsoon, mating period of wild animals begins. These four months of rainy season from July to October are considered most crucial for mating of wildlife animals. During these months the wild animals turn aggressive and need complete isolation. These aspects along with other maintenance works of the Forest Department are necessary for closing of parks across the State.

Rajasthan all set for its third Tiger Reserve

More of the big cats will be glorifying the timeless heritage of Rajasthan. Rajasthan will home a third tiger reserve in the Mukundra Hills, as notified by the Govt. of Rajasthan.

Covering the four districts of Kota, Bundi, Chittorgarh and Jhalawar.Its reserve area will spread over 759 sq km. Nearly 417 sq km have been earmarked as the core tiger habitat, while 342.82 sq km has been notified as the buffer zone where human interference is prohibited.

The other two tiger reserves of Ranthambore and Sariska have a core area nearly thrice this size.

Mukundra Hills are also connected with the Ranthambore National Park, located in the state’s Sawai Madhopur district.

Moreover, the core area of the Mukundra reserve currently has six villages, two of which are uninhabited. Eventually all these villages will have to be relocated funded by the NTCA (National Tiger Conservation Authority). The sanctuary currently has wolves, sloth bear, chinkaras and leopards!
Officials added that at a later stage, tigers will be relocated from Ranthambore reserve so as to provide optimum space for the majestic dwellings.

The objective was to link this to Ranthambore so as to let the tigers that stray from the park come and breed here. It was the next best forest after Ranthambore for rehabilitation of tigers.

 

Boat Ride

The pristine Chambal River cuts through mazes of ravines and hills and leaves many sandy beaches throughout the 425 km long sanctuary.
The Chambal Safari is an attempt to acquaint visitors with a land that has retained its unique landscapes, rugged charm and rare wildlife.

Jal Mahal

The Man Sagar is teaming with birds these days and it’s time again for the annual bird fair in Pink City. Compared to previous years, the lake has significantly improved. The stench is now a thing of the past.

Meanwhile, the two-day 16th Birding Fair devoted to Urban Lakes’ Conservation in Rajasthan will start on February 1 2, 2013 at the Man Sagar dam led by Rani Vidya Devi of Jaipur’s erstwhile royal family.

About 2,500 migratory birds can be seen against 10,000 birds reported a few years back. Diving shovellers, pintails, coots, resident ducks like spot-bill duck and common moorhen, and four species of egrets too can be seen though barely 400 in number.  Besides, the Lake forms part of Jaipur’s northern frontal facade, which is marked by hills, forests, forts, heritage buildings, Ashwamegh Yajna site and cluster of Temples, and casts a spell binding charm over visitors during this birding fair.
