Current Affair 2:
Spotted Dear Translocated


Recently, 40 spotted deer (axis axis) have been translocated from Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens (Mysuru Zoo) to Kali Tiger Reserve.

Kali Tiger Reserve, earlier known as Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve, is located in the central portion of the Uttara Kannada (North Canara) district of Karnataka state.


It comprises two important protected areas of the region, viz., Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary and Anshi National Park.

The Kali River, which forms the major source of water for Uttara Kannada, flows through the tiger reserve, hence the name.


This is the first of its kind in South India.

Though translocations have happened in the past in small numbers, the number of animals (40) in this lot has no precedence. It is the principle that when herbivores breed excessively in captivity, they are translocated into their natural habitats. In captivity, the herbivores cannot be crammed in enclosures more than their natural need for roaming around, this is when the decision is taken to translocate them. They are usually translocated in low prey-density facilities.

In Kali Tiger Reserve, the carnivores have more area but fewer herbivores. The herbivores will maintain their population, breed faster with surplus food in larger areas, and ensure their security of life. In Kali Tiger Reserve.
