Are wild dogs scaring away tigers from Nagzira?
For the first time, a study on behaviour of dholes (wild dogs) will be conducted in Navegaon-Nagzira Tiger Reserve (NNTR) in Gondia and Bhandara districts. It will also focus on whether increasing number of dholes is correlated to tigers.
The study, to be done by Wildlife Institute of India (WII), Dehradun, next month is among the seven research projects in protected areas (PAs) that have been granted a go ahead by a committee headed by chief wildlife warden Shree Bhagwan on November 3.
