Tigress ‘Rani’ Welcomes Three Cubs at Nahargarh Biological Park, Rajasthan

In a heartwarming development for wildlife enthusiasts and conservationists alike, Nahargarh Biological Park in Jaipur witnessed the joyous arrival of three tiger cubs, born to the tigress named “Rani” on a serene Friday morning. The news was confirmed by officials who have been diligently monitoring the health and well-being of the newly-expanded feline family.

Deputy Conservator of Forest, Jagdish Gupta, expressed delight over the addition to the park’s tiger population, stating, “The tigress gave birth to three cubs on Friday morning, marking a significant milestone in our conservation efforts.”

Among the trio of adorable cubs, one stood out with its rare white coat, adding to the excitement surrounding their birth. The attentive staff at Nahargarh Biological Park has been employing state-of-the-art surveillance techniques, including CCTV monitoring, to ensure the safety and health of both the mother and her newborns.

The journey leading to this joyous occasion traces back to the relocation of the tigress, Rani, from Odisha’s Nandankanan Zoological Park to Jaipur in 2021. Since then, she has been under the care of dedicated professionals at Nahargarh Biological Park, where efforts to bolster the tiger population have been underway.

In a strategic move to enhance genetic diversity and promote breeding, a male tiger named ‘Shivaji’ was introduced to the park as part of the “Wildlife Exchange Programme” in July 2022. The union between Rani and Shivaji exemplifies the collaborative efforts aimed at ensuring the long-term sustainability of tiger populations.

Speaking on the meticulous preparations leading up to the birth, Gupta highlighted the proactive measures taken to ensure a conducive environment for the tigress and her cubs. “Surveillance was initiated as soon as we discovered that the tigress was pregnant. Special attention has been given to cleanliness, and a dedicated caretaker has been entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring the well-being of Rani and her offspring,” he stated.

The birth of three healthy cubs not only signifies a triumph for conservationists but also heralds hope for the future of tiger conservation in Rajasthan. With the addition of these precious cubs, the tiger population at Nahargarh Biological Park has now grown to seven, marking a positive stride towards maintaining a thriving ecosystem within the park.

As the world celebrates this heartening news, it serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of preserving and protecting our precious wildlife. The arrival of Rani’s cubs symbolizes resilience, hope, and the unwavering commitment to safeguarding the majestic species that continue to enchant and inspire us.
