The Wildlife Institute of India (WII) has shot down the proposal from the state forest and wildlife department for the translocation of one sub adult male tiger from the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve to Sariska Tiger reserve.

In his reply to the proposal from the principal chief conservator of forest and chief wildlife warden Dr G V Reddy to the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), director of the Wildlife Institute of India (WII) Dr B V Mathur said the need of the hour is transfer of one adult tiger of a different genetic pool to Sarika to sustain the tiger population and not a sub adult as proposed by the wildlife department.
