NEWSLINK: Forest dept confirms five tigers at Mhadei

The Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary of Sattari is again in the news for the presence of almost five tigers in it. 

This area is not easily accessible and has tough geographical terrain and using camera trap techniques was a big challenge. The camera trap technology used by the forest officials of wildlife division took pictures of five different tigers.This time the authorities, with the help of trekkers, put the camera trap in areas where tiger movements were most likely. 

Vitthal Shelke, an activist with Wildlife Rescue in Sattari said, "There is no doubt that tigers moving in the Mhadei region are residents, since repeated camera trap pictures have indicated that the area is a favourable natural habitat for the big cats". We had planned our strategy to protect and conserve the tigers.
