Tigers return to Gadchiroli forests after 30 years, human-animal conflict spikes





by Saurabh Katkurwar



  • Gadchiroli district has seen a sharp increase in tiger population in recent years thanks to spillover from neighbouring Chandrapur district that is home to Tadoba- Andhari Tiger Reserve.



  • Lack of cohabitation experience with the tigers is causing people to panic, which is leading to aggravated human-animal conflicts.



  • Experts and forest department advocate strengthening wildlife corridors and coexistence as viable solutions.
