Tigers spotted in three more forest areas in Odisha-Routray

Bhubaneswar, Sep 29 (UNI) The presence of Royal Bengal Tiger (RBT) has reported in three more forest areas in Odisha, State Forest and Environment Minister Bijayashree Routray said here today.
Mr Routray said the photographs captured in CCTV installed in Himagiri forest in Sundergarh, Debrigarha forest near Hirakud and in Muniguda forest in Rayagada district showed the presence of one Royal Bengal Tigers in each of these areas.
Odisha has two Tiger Reserves—Simlipal Tiger Reserve in Mayurbyhanj district and the Satkosia Tiger Reserve spread over Angul, Cuttack, Nayagarha and Boudh districts.
The state government, he said had requested the Central government to declare the Sunabeda and Debrigarha forest as Tiger Reserves.
The census of tigers conducted by using both pug mark and camera trap techniques in 2016 revealed the presence of 29 tigers in Simlipal Tiger reserve only.
In Satkosia Tiger Reserve there was only one tigress and the state government had brought two tigers—one male and one female from Madhya Pradesh recently with an objective to increase the tiger population in the state.
As per the official sources the tiger population of the entire state was 32 ( on the basis of camera trap method adopted by Wildlife Institute of India (WII) in 2010-11 which was reduced to 28 in 2014-15 as per the census conducted by WII using only the camera trap method.
However, the state government estimated the number of tigers at 40 during a census conducted using both camera trap and pug mark method in 2015-16.
Mr Routray said the tiger population will be more than 40 in the state as recently five tiger cubs were spotted in Simlipal Tiger Reserves.
