Valmikinagar Tiger Reserve :: What and How Do We Contribute.

VALMIKINAGAR TIGER RESERVE is a recently established tiger sanctuary. But the entire project has been appropriated by Babus and Politicians. Could we expect real conservation from such people as our experience from other tiger reserve tells us ? I feel that public participation is vital to this project in saving tigers.

In 2000, there were 56 tigers in this area. Now there are only 12 tigers left. What we can do is to actively engage in tiger conservation by visiting the area, living with villagers, educating them and their children of the benefit of conservation. I know there are such projects run by nature enthusiasts in Dudhwa, Corbett, Kanha. Can we not get involved in some way ?

Post your views, plan if any and project you can think of.

The Valmikinagar Tiger Reserve was once the pride of not only Bihar but the whole of India. As so rightly pointed out by Dr Kumar, It can be brought back to its former glory, if sustained and right approach towards creating awareness about it is followed. Personally, this reserve is close to my heart even as I have fond memories of it. I spent my childhood in Champaran as then my mother was posted there. She was Head Mistress at a girls’ school at Bagha, Champaran. Often, she organized school excursions to the forest zone and we had a wonderful and thrilling time there with others.

We should do what it takes to preserve the reserve and the tigers. Under no cost we allow the tigers to become extinct. 

We really need to promote more and more to VNTR. Its not only duties of government its our duty also to discuss about this hidden adventure. I m feeling guilty as a Bihari that I m really not aware about VNTR. And one of my dream to go in Jim Corbet(Utrakhand), Sariska tiger reserve & RTR(Rajsthan) But its never come in my mind that i dont have to go other state while its available in our Bihar

  • BSTDC immediately add information about VNTR(and should start a tours package for the public with online booking with maximum information with pictures.
  • We Bihari must discuss with our other friends about VNTR, If gov getting a good income by tourist they can spend money on tigers to save their life.
  • BSTDC should have separate website with professional look with good information about all tourism sector of Bihar.    

Thanks for sharing with us your experience and knowledge on the issue! Being a wildlife lover and enthusiast myself, I can 'connect' with your thoughts rather well, or so I believe.

Why bother going to forest to see an elusive tiger? Let us catch them all, keep in the Zoo and Circus and watch there. They will be safe from poachers.

Good idea for a Disney world type resort. Not a wildlife sanctuary. Its ideal location will be Patna, Muzaffarpur, Darbhanga, Motihari etc.The whole idea is to use locally available material for building accomodaion, no brick work, use locan artisan, employ and train local people to include them in conservation, provide jobs and share in the prosperity.

awsome doct shaaaab
Doct sab in my view featured wild life sanctuary is the more advanc idea comparison to disney world.It will mainten naturality of that particular area for the long long time.Featured area for the animals would be responsible in creating homely enviroment for them.So i vote for featured wild life world with greenery.

Dear R Singh, if we do not protect and conserve tiger we will run out of water in our streams and rivers!!! More than 350 stream in India originate from the forests, which are tiger reserves. In Bihar, the Burhi Gandak River originates from Valmiki Tiger Reserve. Tiger is not simply an animal, it is an indicator of health of forests.

Singh Saheb, feeding poors and hungry is the job of government, not poor tiger. Sadly, tiger doesn't have vote. It is worth remembering that 40% food rot in absence of refrigeration, red tape, Babuism. Tigers are our identity, national treasure. If they are creating trouble in your village, it is not the fault of tiger but humans.
 Deforestation, encroachment on tiger's territory result in human - tiger conflict. A well tried and trusted approach to conervation on scientific basis, educating villagers outside forest is important.
