NEWSLINK: State ready to translocate tigers to western half of Rajaji Tiger Reserve

After months of deliberation and careful planning, the state forest department is all set to translocate tigers to the western part of Rajaji Tiger Reserve (RTR) which is home to two lone tigresses. The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) has granted permission for five tigers for the translocation project.

The western part of RTR is separated from the eastern half by a narrow corridor that is threatened by the perpetual construction of flyovers, widening highways and new townships.
