With more than 100 resident tigers, TATR is planning to install high-point cameras that offer a 360-degree view of the landscape to allow tracking of animal movement.
The reserve is known for its tiger sightings in core, buffer and even periphery areas.
“Aerially-mounted 360-degree view cameras would be installed to provide 24×7 inputs on movements of animals and birds, villagers, forest staff, guards and poachers.
“The Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) in Chandrapur district is Maharashtra’s oldest and largest national park and one of India’s 48 Project Tiger reserves. It has tigers in the core area, buffer zone, periphery and the complete landscape.
“This is being done on a pilot basis and the experiment would be replicated elsewhere in Maharashtra,” Finance and Planning Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar told Deccan Herald.”
