Camera-trapping of tigers begins in Kaziranga National Park


 
The National Tiger Conservation Authority has started camera-trapping of tigers in the world-famous Kaziranga National Park in Assam. 


135 cameras have been installed in the tiger hubs of the 430 square- kilometre Park along the river Brahmaputra.


The monitoring of the tigers have been taken up by the park authority in coordination with World wildlife Fund (WWF) and a local nature-loving organization-Aaranyak. 


Mr. Dutta said the process will be completed within next 40 to 45 days. He said around a hundred Royal Bengal Tigers were found in the National Park during the monitoring done last year.


Kaziranga contains significant breeding populations of 35 mammalian species, of which, 15 are threatened as per the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List.


The park has the distinction of being home to the world's largest population of the Great Indian One-Horned Rhinoceros numbering over 1800. It is also famous for Wild Asiatic Water Buffalo, elephants and Eastern Swamp Deer.
