The latest updates on the wildlife front are very upsetting and shocking. The second deadly blow to the tigers in the wild. Panna Tiger Reserve has gone the sariska way. All the tigers have been poached. Apparantly a healthy tiger from the banipur/nagarhole range was relocated to Bhadra and in the absence of proper wildlife vets she was given an extra dosage of anesthesia and died. It is shocking and terribly upsetting because even though there has been such publicity on conserving our last few tigers their numbers are still falling. POaching is the main threat in these cases. read the following links.

An NGO called Tiger Watch has done remarkable work in saving the tigers of Ranthambhore. It truely shows us how one mans will and passion can make such a difference.
