Tiger shifted to Sariska reserve in Rajasthan

Recently a tiger has been shifted from Ranthambore Tiger Reserve to Sariska Tiger Reserve.

The purpose of the relocation of this tiger (T-113) is to increase the number of tigers in the Sariska Tiger Reserve.

This step has been taken because most of the male and female tigers of Sariska are getting old.

This relocation has been done after taking permission from the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA). NTCA is a statutory body under the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972. Transfer of tigers from one reserve to another is called relocation.
