Tiger reserves need to open: Stakeholders | Jaipur News – Times of India

Jaipur: Stakeholders in the wildlife tourism industry, which is reeling under financial crisis, have criticised the move of the forest department and the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) to keep tiger reserves in the state out of bounds for tourists.
In an order issued on Wednesday, the forest department decided to continue to keep two prominent tiger reserves, Ranthambore and Sariska, closed for tourism after the NTCA recently wrote to chief wildlife warden (CWLW).
Stakeholders associated with tiger reserves claimed that the state government should take cue from Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra and proactively support the industry.
A wildlife expert said, “On Wednesday, Maharashtra requested to open the safaris. The parks were reopened in MP and no cases surfaced. People do not go close to tigers during safaris and transfer the virus. The tourists should be allowed to enter after following appropriate protocol.”
