ABSTRACT
In the growing face of deforestation, conservation is the only way to save forest and its precious wild animals, from the human encounter. “Project Tiger “(1973) at Similipal is a welcome step on the direction of tiger conservation, whose population is on the verge of extinction. For the proper protection, preservation and propagation of tiger and forest in the Similipal Tiger Reserve (STR) funds have been allocated from time to time by central govt., state govt. & various NGOs of national and international repute. The responsibility of managing the earmarked fund rests with the management of STR. This paper observes the interrelationship of funds with the trend of tiger population & other variables by using suitable econometric model. Some standard results have been explained. Also it examines the level of efficiency of fund utilization for eight financial years taking the help of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA).
