Tadoba tigers under threat from mushrooming coal mines

Coal mining is a big threat to the tigers residing in Chandrapur region of Maharashtra. Mining should be stopped near Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve ( TATR ) for the safety of tigers. Due to mining and construction of dams TATR may cut off from the adjoining forest where these wild beast moves. This will result in damaging the ecological system.

Tigers usually move from TATR to other forests, including Chaprala, Indravati, Bor and Navegaon-Nagzira. If these areas are used for mining it might pose a threat to wildlife.
