FSI Report on Tiger Safari Project
  • The report revealed that 6,093 trees were illegally cut down in Uttarakhand’s Corbett Tiger Reserve for the Pakhro Tiger Safari Project.
  • The report is disturbing as the Uttarakhand Forest Department gave in writing that only 163 trees needed to be cut to the Forest Advisory Committee (FAC).
  • The FSI conducted a survey after a complaint that was filed to the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) regarding the illegal cutting of thousands of trees.
  • Apart from the FSI, the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC), and the NTCA also found irregularities in the project’s implementation and set up investigating committees to probe these irregularities.
  • With the world’s highest tiger density, the Corbett National Park and the Sonanadi together make up the Corbett Tiger Reserve. It was established in 1936 as Hailey National Park and was later renamed after famous environmentalist, Jim Corbett. Corbett National Park was the first to come under Project Tiger.
