E-eye may soon keep track of tigers in country

An ambitious e-eye surveillance system being implemented by the Centre may soon be expanded to keep track of tigers in wildlife sanctuaries and to prevent poaching and animal-human conflict.

The surveillance system has already been installed in Jim Corbett national park in Uttarakhand, Kaziranga tiger reserve in Assam and Ratapani wildlife sanctuary in Madhya Pradesh with financial assistance from NTCA. The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change recently constituted a group of officers to undertake a performance audit of e-eye system, according to documents accessed by wildlife activist Ajay Dubey.
