There is yet another good news from Similipal. Though not a very big one but yet something for the wildlifers to cheer about. WWF-India has lend a helping hand to the field staff of Similipal Tiger Reserve. Some essential equipment and gears were handed over to the authorities at STR on 13th March 2010. List of equipment include two Bolero Camper vehicles, 250 sleeping bags, 100 water filters, 250 LED torches and 250 pairs of hunter shoes. This gesture of WWF-India is a very laudable one and I thank them from the core of my heart on behalf of all the lovers of wildlife. Such aids definitely help keep the spirits high in the field staffs who put their life at stake to protect our endangerd wilderness. This action will definitely will give a boost to the anti-poaching and surveillance operations. Finally good luck to the staffs of Similipal..
