Tiger reserve can hold 25 tigers with good prey density

With overall prey density of 75.11 animals per sqkm, the Navegaon-Nagzira Tiger Reserve (NNTR) in Gondia and Bhandara districts holds a promising future for tigers which are crying for space and moving to lesser-known areas through fragmented corridors.  

The latest study report on 'Status of prey in NNTR', jointly conducted by NNTR officials, Wildlife Institute of India (WII), Dehradun, National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), also states that the reserve currently has just 0.95 tigers per 100 sqkm, whereas it can sustain 4.41 in the same area.  Please follow the link below to read the report in the Times of India.
