Academicians throughout the country will gather at Gadchiroli Gondwana University to discuss ways of creating livelihood for tribals residing at Gadchiroli. The two day workshop will start from 18th January and conclude on 19th January 2013. The workshop is being conducted with the help of Rajiv Gandhi Science and Technology Commission (RGSTC), Government of Maharashtra, Indian Institute of Technology, Powai, and Forest Department.
Pravin Pardeshi, principal secretary of forest department has initiated discussions with PCCF Wildlife (Maharashtra) to keep wildlife sanctuaries open in monsoon season this year. Only Tadoba Andheri Tiger Reserve (TATR) remained open in monsoon while other parks were closed.
Opening of national parks in the monsoon season will help protect wild animals as tourist can also inform guard if they find something unusual happening around them. No tourist vehicles will be allowed inside the park but only forest vehicles will be used for movement inside the park.
