Tigress travels 70km from one protected to another

NAGPUR: Tigers are long-ranging animals, migrating from one protected area to another. In yet another recorded migration, a tigress named Kaani travelled almost 70km to reach Navegaon wildlife sanctuary from New Nagzira, crossing the busy NH6. Both the PAs are now part of Navegaon-Nagzira Tiger Reserve (NNTR), though divided by the national highway.   Quite a few migrations have been reported from Nagzira earlier too. In 2009, it was Prince, who travelled to Pench followed by another male Aayat, who moved along Balaghat-Kanha corridor in February 2013. During the same year, another male Jai reached Umred-Karhandla sanctuary, travelling 120km.  Please follow link below to the report in The Times of India.
