Green Signal for New Tiger Corridor

Untitled-2Government of India approved the Telangana wildlife department and gave green signal for creating a tiger corridor between Kawal tiger reserve (KTR) in Adilabad and Tadoba tiger reserve (TTR) in Maharashtra. The plan of the department has been to develop three tiger corridors between Kawal tiger reserve and Tadoba tiger reserve, Pakhal wildlife sanctuary and Papikonda wildlife sanctuary and Kawal tiger reserve and Indravathi tiger reserve (ITR) in Chhattisgarh.
The two tiger reserves would be connected with a corridor making way for elephants and tigers to migrate from one sanctuary to the other. The Union government has proposed this plan keeping in mind the habitation and movement of tigers which can travel up to 70 km in a single day, for which the proposed corridor width should not be less than 3 km.
The official said the corridor has been divided into three modules which include – core area, buffer area and the corridor area. The official explained that though they received the approval of assessing the core area and buffer area, they were yet to receive an approval for the management plan. Deputy Conservator of Forests, Wildlife, and A Shankaran said that they had surveyed the lands suitable for developing the corridor between KTR and ITR.
