FDCM starts measures to check forest fires in Tadoba

TNN | Jan 19, 2013, 01.47AM IST

": Fire fighting unit of FDCM has initiated early measures to check the forest fire in Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) in coming summer. They have completed the fireline cutting work in the tiger reserve and would burn the chopped foliage on the fireline between February 1 and 15.


Last year TATR had lost over 4,000 hectares of forest in wild fires in summer months. Cautious authorities of FDCM west Chanda division, that shoulders the responsibility of control of fire in TATR, are in no mood to leave any stone unturned this year."


When we went to Kanha in feb there was burning like this going on by the roads and we believed it had a detrimental effect on the quality of our sightings. Obviously this work needs to be done and it's good to know when the work is planned to take place. With our new dates hopefully seeing us visit Tadoba in mid march I am hopeful that this work will have been completed by then. Might even be beneficial to us if it reduces the amount of cover! Here's hoping! Still waiting for the other client to confirm that the new dates are a go... So still not 100% sure the trip is happening yet..
