Another tiger reserve under threat

Today's Hindu reports " Tigers in reserve under threat". The tunnel excavation of the Srisailam project is leading to movement of tigers from their natural habitat. The report speaks about underground vibrations disturbing animal life. It also speaks about roads being laid in the core area without permission as well as dumping of debris into the reservoir. Lessons from this project have to be taken into consideration for work to be taken up in the Mudumalai Sanctuary for the Neutrino project. Hope this serves as a wake up call to all concerned.
