Sole Tigress Ambika Succumbs to Heat Stroke at Jodhpur’s Machiya Safari Park

In a heart-wrenching turn of events, the solitary tigress named Ambika, residing at Jodhpur’s Machiya Safari Park, has tragically passed away due to heat stroke. The demise of this majestic creature has cast a pall of sorrow over many hearts. Park officials reported that after partaking in her afternoon meal, Ambika retired for rest but failed to awaken from her slumber.

According to park ranger Balaram Bishnoi, efforts to rouse the tigress in the evening proved futile, as she remained immobile. It was soon discovered that she had breathed her last. Bishnoi lamented, “We found her lifeless.”

Ambika, a 10-year-old tigress, was among the primary attractions of the park. Originally relocated from Kanpur in 2016 along with a male tiger named Anthony, her untimely demise leaves Anthony, who is slightly older than ten years, to roam the park’s confines alone.

About Machiya Safari Park:

Nestled in Jodhpur, Machiya Safari Park stands as one of Rajasthan’s prominent wildlife sanctuaries. Offering a distinctive safari experience amidst desert terrain, the park sprawls across vast expanses and shelters diverse flora and fauna.

Visitors can easily spot a range of wildlife, including desert foxes, jungle cats, spiny-tailed lizards, and an array of avian species. Jeep safaris, guided nature walks, and bird watching excursions allow guests to immerse themselves in the park’s rich biodiversity, while its tranquil ambiance and scenic landscapes make it a favored spot for nature enthusiasts and photographers.

Rajasthan’s Sweltering Heatwave:

As Rajasthan grapples with scorching temperatures, soaring above 48 degrees Celsius in Barmer, it marks the country’s highest recorded temperature this year. Churu closely follows at 47.4 degrees, with Phalodi at 47.8 degrees and Jaisalmer at 47.2 degrees.

Given the blistering heatwave, the Meteorological Department has issued a red warning for Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, and western Uttar Pradesh, cautioning of a “very high likelihood” of heat-related illnesses and heat strokes among people.

As the sweltering heatwave grips Northern India, with Barmer witnessing temperatures surpassing 48 degrees Celsius, it becomes imperative for authorities and individuals to take necessary precautions, ensuring the safety and well-being of both humans and wildlife alike.
