NEWSLINK: Finding a new home: Tigers from highly-congested Corbett park to be relocated

The big cats of Corbett will soon find a new home in Uttarakhand.

The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) has asked the state forest department to speed up the ground work for relocation of four tigers from the highly congested Corbett landscape to Rajaji National Park, which has 15 felines.

Once the step is taken, most probably by the end of the year, it will be the first relocation of tigers in India to a habitat that already has big cats.
