The Death of a Wetland...

A confession...this is not being reported from the field. I have not personally visited Bharatpur National Park, not recently anyway.

Sundarban experienced a low density cyclonic weather on the evening of Monday 26.04.2010. A young Tigress probably misguided by the strong wind & turbulent river entered the Adibashipara village in the Bagna Range & was spotted by a villager.

Return to Palamau Tiger Reserve(PTR)--The Heartland of Wildlife and Naxalism in Jharkhand

 

 

                                                        First of all let me briefly introduce myself and my relationship with the Palamau Tiger Reserve—A neglected Tiger Reserve that seems to have been


 

I have just returned from the Sundarbans and marvel at the sheer pluck of those who defend tigers here, as well as those who live cheek by jowl with them.

With sea levels rising, floods and droughts increasing, and glaciers in sharp retreat, India's tigers and her tiger reserves across the country face a new threat from
