Corbett Tiger Reserve Needs You! Er… at least your photographs.

CTR, one of India’s largest national parks, is putting together a Tusker Identification Manual similar to the one published by Rajaji National Park. The reserve is requesting visitors to share clear tusker shots by e-mail to¬†corbetttuskerphotos@gmail.com

“All photos used will be acknowledged and photo credits will be given. These photographs may be used by CTR for management purposes such as research, monitoring, awareness and trainings,” according to a statement on CTR website.

Contributors need to include information on date and time and also label the file names with: name followed by the location (e.g. Name_Dhikala_tusker1.jpg).

And remember, only photographs of adult elephant tuskers shot within CTR between 2010-2015 need to be submitted.
