Maharashtra tiger reserve likely to be expanded

Sunil K Mukhopadhyay

Chandrapur (Maha), Jan 3 (PTI) Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) is proposed to be expanded by an additional 1,100 sq km from the current 625.40 sq km for making it an ideal habitat for tigers and to reduce the threat of poaching.

“We have proposed to the government to include another 1,100 sq km to TATR which has about 45 big cats and at least 12 to 14 cubs. Once the new area is added, TATR will become an ideal habitat for tigers,” S P Thakre, Conservator of Forest and field director, TATR told PTI here.

“We must have inviolate areas if we want the tiger to survive for long. From that point, we feel that the area of TATR should be extended,” he said.
