Mumbai: The much appreciated rehabilitation programme to move six villages out of Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) has hit a major road block as around 19 rehabilitated families have come back and are refusing to leave unless they are paid more money to do so.

The Pench Tiger Reserve, which stretches across Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra, is contiguous with the Nagzira Sanctuary, the Navegaon National Park, and the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve in Maharashtra, which, combined, create a large green corridor running from southern Madhya Pradesh to eastern Maharashtra.

FINALLY, the government has taken cognisance of the sudden end to the man-animal conflict in the problem areas of Chandrapur district. The acting Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife) SK Sood has been asked to "immediately" explain the disappearance of tigers from forests around the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR).

Mumbai: Environmentalists are worried about the turn of things in the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR), considered the best tiger reserve in Maharashtra. The man-tiger conflict in this Chandrapur forest area, which had grown alarmingly in the last three years, has suddenly come to an end in the past five months.


Mumbai: The Adani Mining Private Limited's isn't the only company awaiting clearance to mine coal in the dense forest cover around the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR).

Five companies have been allotted coal blocks in the area. Environmentalists say, this will be the death-knell for the tiger reserve.

Mumbai: State forest minister Babanrao Pachpute is drawing flak from environmentalists again. Earlier, he was criticised for threatening non-governmental organisations (NGOs) for opposing a proposed coal mining project in the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve in Chandrapur district, east Maharashtra.

Mumbai: Babanrao Pachpute, the state forest minister, wants a mining project on the outskirts of Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve. So much so that he has threatened an NGO of dire consequences for opposing the project.
