The Central Zoo Authority (CZA) has asked Corbett National Park officials to prepare a detailed report on a proposed project of Tiger Safari in the reserve. In order to improve spotting of tigers and other wild animals in Corbett, the authority has come up with a proposal of special Tiger Safaris in a 200-hectare area of Kalagarh Range of the park.

According to reports, this proposed area of Kalagarh will be a walled one with two gates as a security measure. CZA, who has given a nod to the plan, has asked the officials of Corbett National Park to submit a detailed report on the project. As per Sameer Sinha, Director, Corbett National Park, a proposal for inclusion of vehicles equipped with security features to ward off any unpleasant incident; a sophisticated rescue centre with trained staff and medical equipment for the Tigers as well as for other animals in the Safari has also been made. It has been pointed out that only about 19 to 20 tigers live in 100 sq. km of area in Corbett where the number of tigers is about 215.
It is to be noted that in August 2015, the National Tiger Conservation Authority had approved the plan for the Tiger Safari in Pakhro area of Kalagarh range that has about 200 hectares of land. Once the final report, which will include the decision of gender ratio of the animals along with other important suggestions is submitted and approved, the wildlife lovers will no longer deal with disappointed of not being able to sight animals like Tiger. Corbett National Park sprawls over an area of 520 sq.km and is home to 110 species of plants, 50 species of mammals, 580 species of birds and 25 species of reptiles.
