About 100 years ago, Mirzapur forest area in Uttar Pradesh was home to rich wildlife population including tigers and cheetah but the wildlife population has declined over the decades.
A camera trap study has now recorded a thriving wildlife system including the presence of several protected species that have been recorded for the first time, such as the Asiatic wild cat, rusty-spotted cat and leopard.
The study has recommended to the government to notify a part of the Mirzapur’s forest area as a conservation reserve with sloth bear as a flagship species. It noted that the Mirzapur forests are an important wildlife corridor for protected areas around it.
