SAARC leaders to visit Sariska Tiger Reserve

SAARC leaders to visit Sariska Tiger Reserve

STAFF WRITER 12:41 HRS IST

New Delhi, Jul 30 (PTI) India will showcase its success story in re-introducing tigers in Rajasthan’s Sariska reserve to the SAARC nations when their foreign ministers meet here next month.

“The dignitaries from the neighbouring countries visiting India in August to attend a conference will also take a trip to Sariska Tiger Reserve where three tigers – a male and two females were relocated from Ranthambore Tiger Reserve last year,” Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said.

“The tigers are doing pretty well and we hope that they will soon go the family way. The project signifies our commitment towards wildlife conservation including tiger preservation which is enlisted as endangered species and tops the chart of the ecology system,” Ramesh added.

SAARC countries like Bhutan, China and Bangladesh have tigers in the wild but the count is too low when compared to India which has around 1,400 big cats in the forests.
