Abstract

Tiger is an integral part of India ethos and finds a place in our mythology, legends, folklore and poetry. The morphological attributes of tiger are remarkable to enable the species for successful predation in nature. Now tiger have increased in their reserve and peripheral areas. However, these source areas require ongoing managerial support and protection with improved field delivery. Being a territorial carnivore which inhabits metapopulation, connectivity is required between “source and sink” populations. In addition, such populations need to be connected with other source areas as well as through corridor for gene flow. As the Kosi corridor of Corbett is merely vanishing. So for genetic viability between two regions i.e. Corbett and Ramnagar forest division should be maintain by protecting the corridor through strict action against anthropogenic stress without political resolution. Present study depicts the tiger census of three decades of its wilderness in Corbett Tiger Reserve.
