World’s 1st Sanctuary For White Tigers Opens In MP


Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh along with Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar and other dignitaries have inaugurated the world’s first wildlife sanctuary for white tigers in Madhya Pradesh


The world’s maiden ‘White Tiger Safari‘ at Mukundpur in Satna district in the state’s Vindhya region where the feline was first discovered more than 100 years ago. However, in 1976, the region lost its lone white tiger named Virat. The first of its kind safari has cost Rs. 50 crore and is spread over an area of 25 hectares. It will be be free for visitors for the first week. Presently, there are three white tigers and two Royal Bengal tigers. The safari will get nine white tigers in the coming months


The safari will be named after Rewa princely state’s ruler Maharaja Martand Singh who had a ‘pet’ white tiger named Mohan in 1951. It later became the progenitor of all known white tigers in the world after the ruler arranged for its breeding. The white tiger is a part of the city’s legacy and has also been an election issue since people of the region have been demanding for it such a sanctuary.
Extra Info :
The MP government recently cleared a large diamond mine inside prime forests near Panna. The MoEF’s nod is awaited but, if cleared, the project may spell doom for tigers. The other concern is the Ken-Betwa river linking project that is likely to submerge a large part of the Panna habitat, and could be devastating for tigers and gharials in the region.


So lets discuss some questions related to this post :
1. World’s first sanctuary for White Tigers has opened in which state of India ?
2. Who is the CM of Madhya Pradesh ?
3. What is the cost for the first of its kind safari ?
