Maharashtra's tigers seem to be exploring a new habitat in Gadchiroli with the forest department recording the presence of around four of these apex predators in the district, which does not have a strong wildlife base. "Earlier, tigers from Bramhapuri used to come and leave. Now, they have been residing here," P Kalyankumar, chief conservator of forests (CCF), Gadchiroli, told DNA. He noted that in the past, tigers from neighbouring Chandrapur district would move to Gadchiroli to escape temporary competition from other tigers in their areas and subsequently move back to their original habitats. Kalyankumar said they expected some adult and sub-adult tigers from Chandrapur, which houses the Tadoba- Andhari tiger reserve (TATR) and the Chandrapur territorial circle, to shift to Gadchiroli. The TATR and the neighbouring Chandrapur territorial area have a healthy tiger ecosystem. According to last year's Phase IV camera trapping exercise, these habitats have 61 and 43 tigers respectively, the highest in ...
