As per reports, the state forest department will start Operation Monsoon in Corbett Tiger Reserve to keep an eye on poaching in the ongoing rainy reason. In the operation around 700 forest departments, employees will be deployed in the Corbett Tiger Reserve during the monsoon season which began from July 1.
According to wildlife warden RK Tiwari, the department of the forest has done all the preparations for Operation Monsoon which includes rations and other necessary things for the staffers deployed in the reserve. According to forest officials, patrolling is important in monsoon season as the chances of hunting increases. In the monsoon season, poachers are able to enter forests through broken pathways or waterlogged places.
Corbett Tiger Reserve to start ‘Operation Monsoon’
Tiwari said in Operation Monsoon, a special focus will be on drains, rivulets, and other water bodies that connect from UP as these poachers find it easy to enter this way. Apart from that, surveillance teams will be deployed in the reserve to keep an eye on the poachers.
Monsoon season is breeding season for tigers and roads also get affected because of heavy rains. However, the NTCA asked tiger parks to remain closed but the decision depends on field directors.
