Northeast India lends voice to National Tiger Conservation Authority4th July 2011
Firoz Ahmed, a wildlife biologist with Aaranyak in Assam, who carries out tiger camera trapping in wildlife parks in Assam with funding from DSWF, has been appointed as a member of the National Tiger Conservation Authority ( NTCA )
Firoz, who will serve a one year term, said: "I will try to highlight the issues of the Northeast in the tiger conservation policies."
Firoz led the team in the Kaziranga camera trapping exercise which put the park at the top of the league for density of tiger in India. Firoz says that although tiger reserves in the region have resources, rigourous planning is required at management level to use the resources most effectively. He is also developing individial tiger profiles in Kaziranga, Orang, Manas and Nameri under the Tiger Informatics through Geospatial and Ecological Research (TIGER) project.
"This will assist the managers and other stakeholders with updated information on tigers in the region and create awareness amoung the masses," added Firoz.
