Rajasthan now has 4 Tiger Reserves after National Tiger Conservation Authority (NCTA) gave its nod to notify Ramgarh Vishdhari Wildlife Sanctuary as a Tiger Reserve. The other notable Tiger Reserves are Ranthambhore, Sariska and Mukundara.
The Ramgarh Sanctuary in Bundi District has been upgraded to Tiger Reserve, said Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar. The minister tweeted, “Happy to sanction one more tiger Sanctuary, Ramgarh Vishdhari Sanctuary which will link Ranthambore Tiger Reserve in the Northeast and Mukundra Hills Tiger Reserve on the southern side. Increasing numbers of Tigers and other apex predators certify our robust biodiversity.”
The addition of Ramgarh Sanctuary as a Tiger Reserve has taken the number of Tiger Reserves in India to 52.
