Freeway Blocks Tiger Motion,Results Breeding In Panna Nationwide Park


As tigers discover new territories in Panna nationwide park, a nationwide freeway crisscrossing the jungle is stopping additional growth of tiger territory within the core space of the park. Furthermore, realignment of the highway- NH39– has been delayed over a 12 months. There’s additionally a state freeway crossing the park and the cumulative impact of the 2 roads is devastating.
