‘Tiger density highest in Corbett park’

Prithviraj Singh Dehradun

A Wildlife Institute of India survey report has claimed Uttarakhand’s Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve has the highest density of tigers in the world.

One tiger is found on every eight square kilometres of the park. As per forest department sources, a large portion of Corbett even houses two tigers on 10 square kilometres.

An MoU (memorandum of understanding) will be signed between park authorities, the Union and State Governments for managing the affairs of the park.

“The tiger density in the Corbett park was around one in every eight sq km and this figure is the highest in the world,” State Chief Wildlife Warden Srikant Chandola said.
