Tiger Heavens of India

Tadoba, Bandhavgarh, Kanha Pench and Panna are veritable tiger heavens of India all in the Central India.  These are destinations popular for tiger safaris and bird watching but their status is that of a conservation unit and tourism activities are restricted to twenty percent of the core.

Once a contiguous patch of more than ten thousand kilometers these are now isolated islands of hope. In these protected areas the critically endangered tiger makes its last stand. With few decades the population of big cats has risen but more needs to be done to save them from extinction. The biggest threat arises from denudation of their habitats and from poaching. In a densely populated country forest denudation is a major threat while poaching takes place now and then. These factors are being looked into by the Government of India under the aegis of Project Tiger program supervised by NTCA and allied organizations.
