ONLY RESTRICTED TOURISM CAN ALLOW ON TIGER RESERVES

The Supreme Court order banning tourism in core areas of tiger reserves till further directions has evoked sharp reactions from forest officials and conservationists the state.“Whatever may the statistics or data... the fact of the matter is that tigers are on the verge of extinction... till final directions are issued by this court with respect to the guidelines by the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests and the National Tiger Conservation Authority, the core areas in tiger reserves will not be used for tourism,”.

                                 Most felt that regulated tourism is a better option than a complete ban."Regulated tourism is a much better option. We have over the past 10 years controlled much of tourism activities in Parambikulam Tiger Reserve of Kerala. At day time, only limited vehicles of the Parambikulam FDA  go into the park. Such an order will have far-reaching effect on an entire community that has grown up on tourism activities in the park. Besides, as of now,It is strictly restricted only on Tourism- Buffer zone.

As my view it is more helpful for conservation ......
It can provide about 240 peoples to job security...
