Four New Tiger Reserves For Maharashtra

With more than 8,000sq.km of protected wildlife area, Maharashtra is a big player in wildlife conservation. And to add to that is another 350sq.km, by way of four new sanctuaries. This will help to conserve tigers, although wildlife experts claim that this area isn’t enough, looking at the amount of destruction in forest cover. Conservationists agree that the areas of Kopela-Kolamarka (Gadchiroli), Umred-Karangla (Nagpur) and grassland areas in Marathwada can be declared as sanctuaries.

The areas notified are Umarzari adjoining Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary (152.81sq.km), Navegaon sanctuary around Navegaon National Park (133.88sq.km) and new Bor sanctuary around existing Bor Wildlife Sanctuary (61.1sq.km). This way, Navegaon-Nagzira will be declared a tiger reserve and Bor will become part of the famous Pench Tiger Reserve.
