120 Katrang Families Shifted Out Of Satkosia Reserve | Bhubaneswar News

Bhubaneswar: Altogether 120 families from Katrang, a village in the core area of Satkosia Tiger Reserve, have been relocated to make way for development of meadows. It is part of habitat rejuvenation after the tiger translocation project failed earlier.
Wildlife officials said the villagers were relocated after they agreed to move out of the core area, where they have been living for years. The presence of humans disturbs animals in the core area. They were given compensation as per the guideline of National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), sources said.
The relocation provided the wildlife wing of 450 hectare as the villagers vacated the space. The department will develop meadow for prey animals or herbivores so that it becomes sustainable for carnivores. At present, Satkosia has no tiger. Currently, leopards are only sighted in Satkosia.
Field director of Satkosia M Yogajayanand said five villages, including Katrang, need to be vacated to create inviolate space in the reserve. “We have relocated Katrang families and worked out relocation of one more village. The prey density in the reserve, i.e, prey animals per sq km area is also increasing,” said the wildlife officer.
The state government had taken a big plunge to increase tiger population in the reserve in 2018 by introducing country’s first inter-state tiger translocation project but it failed.
Two tigers, a male and female, were brought from Kanha Tiger Reserve and Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve respectively in Madhya Pradesh to Satkosia. Days after their introduction in the new habitat, the male tiger (Mahavir) was found dead with deep cut on its neck, which was suspected to have been ensnared.
The tigress Sundari turned a man-eater and it was returned to Kanha to re-wild it as it had spent pretty long time in a small enclosure in Satkosia leading to human imprint on it. Now, the MP forest department ha shifted it to Van Vihar zoo.
Satkosia reserve comprises two wildlife divisions — Mahanadi and Satkosia. It is the second biggest tiger reserve after Similipal. Recently, the Debrigarh sanctuary also planned meadow development in four villagers after people were relocated. The department got 450 hectare area to develop meadows.
