Kawal becomes India’s 42nd Tiger Reserve

Elevating the number of protected areas in the country and giving the national animal a little more space to roam freely, Kawal Wildlife Sanctuary in Adilabad district of Andhra Pradesh has been officially named as the 42nd Tiger Reserve of the country. The area will not have a core area, a buffer zone and will get funding from the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) to ensure the tigers have a safe new home.
