The centre will be very close to the main forest. The tigers can loiter through the wild, but they cannot leave the centre as it will be fenced off with fifteen feet high iron bars. The work on outer fence is over.
Pradip Vyas, the director of Sunderban Biosphere Reserve stated that it will allow them to treat wounded tigers in the forest; they do not have to spend months at the zoo hospital in Alipore. The cats will have assured food supply, in this place, and it will help them to recover quite fast.
Once the forest department gets adequate fund, they will start working on the second phase. The inner fence will be made in such a way that neither the tigers will be able to enter the next enclosure nor they can swim across the nearby Herobhanga River to enter the villages. The rescue centre will also feature a watch tower to keep a watch on the cats.
Experts have welcomes this move as it will let the big cats in their home environment.
