The Tourism Conundrum: Tourism is a double-edged sword when it comes to wildlife conservation. Unregulated and uncivilised forms of tourism can only be detrimental and distressing for wildlife. What you see here in the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve in Maharashtra is a wide-angle view of the typical ‘circus’ that plays out everyday in many of our national parks. In the mad quest for prized sightings and best images, we as tourists often forget to adhere to basic ethics and common sense.
