Tadoba Management Decided to Bann Diesel Vehicles

In a meeting held at Mohurli (a major gate of Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve), Hon. Mr. Nandkishor, CCF (Wildlife), told that Wildlife Dept. has decided to bann Diesel vehicles used for wildlife safaris from 1st of July 2009.

At present all types of motor vehicles exluding trucks/tractors/three-wheelers are allowed to enter the park for wildlife safaris in Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve. The Diesel vehicles were creating a lot of noise and disturbance as well as polluting the environment inside the park.

From 1st July it can be expected that noise, disturbance and pollution will come down at some extent which may result in better sighting. This decision will also reduce the tourists inside the park. As there are so many people who can not afford to hire Gypsies available at Mohurli Gate or they dont have their own petrol vehicles.

But overall results will be definitely in favour of Wildlife and Nature, I hope.


Diesel Vehicles in TATR Yet to Stop

As I mentioned in my above post, though declared by the Hon. CCF (Wildlife) Mr. Nandkishor in a meeting at Mohurli, Tadoba Management has not banned the diesel vehicles inside the park.

All the Vehicles, except Truck, Tractor and Three-Wheelers, are allowed for game rounds or safari in Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve.

I Hope Deaprtment will implement the decision of banning the Diesel vehicles as early as possible.
