Slide 1: 

Follow us on Monitoring the Tiger Issues in INDIA by Green Yatra

Slide 2: 

Source: Stern Review Follow us on Charismatic Large Carnivore at the Apex of the Food Chain Acts as an umbrella species for conserving the biodiversity of forested ecosystems Importance of Tiger Conservation

Slide 3: 

Questions Relevant for Tiger Conservation State of tiger habitat? Population Trend of Tigers? Areas where Tigers are decreasing & why ? What is the status of tiger’s wild prey? Where are the Source Populations (breeding units) ? Spacing & connectivity of Populations? How many tigers ? Follow us on

Slide 4: 

Current Methodology: The Pugmark Census Followed since 1970, All India Census every 4 years, PT Areas every year. Obtain Pugmark Tracings, Plaster Casts and Gait measurements Ancillary information on location, date, and substrate Identify individual tigers on the above information Continuously monitor individual tigers over time Arrive at a total count in an area Follow us on

Slide 5: 

Critique of the Pugmark Census Method Attempts total count of Tigers. Based on Enumerators Subjective Ability to Identify Individual Tigers from Pugmarks. Variation in Pugmarks with substratum, gait, and observers recording skills. Not possible to obtain Pugmarks from all Tiger Occupied Landscapes. Follow us on

Slide 6: 

Reliability of Subjective Identification of Pugmarks to Individual Tigers Discriminant Function Analysis for Pugmarks of 18 Different Tigers 1. Area of Toe 3 2. Length Toe 3 3. Pug width 4. Distance for T2 to T3 5. Angle between T2 & T3 6. Distance between N1 & N2 7. Length T2 8. Heel to toe length 9. Distance of pad to toe base 10. Stride 11. Straddle Removing Subjectivity Follow us on

Addressing Possible Sources of Variation : 

Addressing Possible Sources of Variation Stage I - Systematic Distribution of Sampling Units Throughout Tiger Landscapes for Spatial Occupancy Monitoring as opposed to Total Count. Beat level (10-15 km2) spatial resolution of : Tigers & Other Carnivore (sign indices) Ungulates (encounter rates & dung / pellet densities) Habitat Details & Human Disturbance Capacity building & Training of Forest Staff Simple yet Scientifically Robust Methodology Across Landscapes. Appropriate Audit Mechanism by External, National & International Experts. Follow us on
