The National Tiger Conservation Authority has given technical approval to the West Bengal Forest Department for the relocation of a tiger at Buxa Tiger Reserve in north Bengal where sighting of big cats was not reported for long.

We have received technical approval from the NTCA and in-principle approval from the statet government for the relcoation of a tiger at Buxa," state Chief Wildlife Warden Pradeep Vyas said.

"We have taken a tiger augmentation plan in Buxa-Jaldapara. Detailed project report is being prepared in consultation with Wildlife Institute of India and Globad Tiger Forum. The report will be ready by February next, he said.

Speaking on whether relocation of tiger is feasible at Buxa where there was human disturbance, he said, Habitat improvement work is underway and steps are being initiated to improve the prey bas and grassland to make the situation.

Many tiger experts had earlier raised question about relocation of tiger at Buxa saying that it would not yield any result unless villages were shifted from the core areas of the tiger reserve. Vyas said a tiger was likely to be relocated to Buxa from Kaziranga in Assam.

The last census based on big cat sample analysis indicated that there were tigers in BTR, which borders Bhutan and Manas Tiger Reserve in Assam. A senior official of the Forest Department said they have plans to reintroduce both male and female tigers from the northeastern forests.

A tiger was photographed in Neora Valley National Park in North Bengal last Thrusday.
