Rajasthan will home a third tiger reserve in the Mukundra Hills

Rajasthan will home a third tiger reserve in the Mukundra Hills, as notified by the Govt. of Rajasthan.

Covering the four districts of Kota, Bundi, Chittorgarh and Jhalawar.Its reserve area will spread over 759 sq km. Nearly 417 sq km have been earmarked as the core tiger habitat, while 342.82 sq km has been notified as the buffer zone where human interference is prohibited.

The other two tiger reserves of Ranthambore and Sariska have a core area nearly thrice this size.

Mukundra Hills are also connected with the Ranthambore National Park, located in the state’s Sawai Madhopur district.

The objective was to link this to Ranthambore so as to let the tigers that stray from the park come and breed here. It was the next best forest after Ranthambore for rehabilitation of tigers.
