NDTV impact: Buffer zone for Tadoba Tiger park

NDTV Correspondent, Saturday May 1, 2010, Mumbai

It is a big victory for NDTV-Aircel’s Save our Tigers campaign.

Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has now cleared the notification files, which means that activities like mining and industries will now be totally out of bounds in the buffer zone of the Tadoba Tiger reserve.

“Yes we have given clearances for some buffer zones. I have cleared the Tadoba proposal. We need to have buffer zones as suggested by the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF). We are doing that,” said Chavan.

This move will certainly go a long way in securing the 625 square kilometre protected forest in Chandrapur which is home to over fifty tigers, a sanctuary shattered by the hostile coal mines that surround it on at least two sides.
