Sartaj Singh, Forest Minister, Madhya Pradesh says there are no "surplus" tigers in the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, so he cannot accede to the request from Rajasthan to send a tiger to Sariska Tiger Reserve.

What came first, wildlife, or wildlife tourism? That's a no-brainer as far as I am concerned. It was much after this that the tourism guys came in, attracted by easy pickings.

I have just returned from the Sundarbans and marvel at the sheer pluck of those who defend tigers here, as well as those who live cheek by jowl with them.

With sea levels rising, floods and droughts increasing, and glaciers in sharp retreat, India's tigers and her tiger reserves across the country face a new threat from

This is relating to a recent trip of mine to Kabini Jungle Lodges and Resorts on the banks of river kabini, which is also one of the foremost wildlife resorts in the country. I say


Sure we get all kinds of tourists....noisy, unsensitive and touristy kinda crowd....sure they dont understand the nuances involved in wildlife and eco tourism...but they are there because they have some liking for wildlife hence choose to be at a wildlife destination....the degree of interest is questionable...but the intent is
