The Tadoba Inheritance Contest Winners
Whose Home Is It?
Third Prize: Nikhil Tambekar
As human encroachments move closer to wild habitats, incidents of tigers outside Protected Areas are bound to increase. This male tiger accidentally entered Ashta village on the periphery of the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve on March 7, 2013, causing much panic and chaos among the villagers. However, the combined efforts of the Forest Department and the Special Tiger Protection Force ensured that the tiger returned to the forest without harming anyone or itself.
