Thank you for inquiry.

This is the last thing the Hon'ble Karnataka High Court should allow. In the Nature Interpretation Centre at Mudumalai some pictures show how speeding cars have mowed down so many wild animal lives including rare and endangered species as Rusty-spotted cat, python and other species as deer, elephant etc. Already the condition of Indian Wildlife is pathetic, by the courtesy of most of our great existing politicians, rampant poaching, illegal trafficking of wild animal body parts and destruction and encroachment of forests
Indian Wildlife is gasping for breath, now if night traffic is allowed through Bandipur
and Mudumalai, that would be the last nail in the coffin of our Indian W.L.
Bandipur is not a unique case where the night traffic has been banned. Its closed in other protected areas like Sariska in Rajasthan and the Nagarjun Sagar Tiger Reserve in andhra Pradesh. Such restrictions are important where the casualty rate of wildlife is high. In Bandipur, the vehicles moving for emergency purposes and state transport department run buses are allowed on the roads during the ban hour to avoid public inconvenience. For other vehicles, there are alternate route which are just 30-40 km longer.The inconvenience to people is negligible as compared the ecological benefits of the night closure.
Absolutely. When less than 2 or 3 percent is left as reserve or sanctuary and Protected Area for all the larger wild animals in the entire subcontinent, we must do everything we can to preserve these parks with zero human disturbance. Other Protected Areas like Corbett are also considering imposing a ban on night traffic. People should google for forest cover in India, and see for themselves how fragmented and pathetic are the shreds of forest left in this country now! Some percentage of what is shown is plantation and social forestry blocks too. Original forests for wildlife is practically gone! We wont have water to drink if this is degraded further.
The Highway between Mysore and Ooty should not be cutting through the precious reserve Bandipura in the first place.
What part of the term 'wildlife reserve' does our Government not understand?! A highway has no place here in the first instance! Come on, media, pick this up and run with it!
As usual the painful steps forward by local people, made with hard labour, hope and trust, are denied any validity by government taking a huge leap backwards, through its thoughtless and insensitive actions.
Everyone knows that "ecofriendly" wind farms are made in these areas to ripoff the poor and to benefit corporations who are not interested in developing our nation but have only a beady eye at their bottom line.
Shame on them.Let us do what we can to stop this.
For every painful step forward , made with the hard labour, hope and trust of individuals, our government takes a leap backward with thoughtless and insensitive action.
The supposedly "eco friendliness" of windfarms is a blast of hot air, and is being promoted by those who stand to gain vast amounts of money. As usual our land and its people are ripped off to serve the greed of a few.
This is outrageous...these poor mute animals are always at the receiving end of all the political melly! I really hope the ban is not lifted..we should start a movement against this.
It's unfortunate to see this. Human greed has no limit. Our future generations will suffer because of these kind of expolitation of nature. RIP Bandipur inhabitants. We worship animals and we do not care for them. sad humans
Most of the people are telling to ban the traffic in Bandipur tiger reserve why not the other places in india why only Bandipur. if its banned every where then no transportation will take place between most of the states at night. they highway can put humps in those highways to reduce acccidents for example from bandipur after border on the way to gudalur there are many humps so accidents are very less to.Do any one know how people are suffering because of this ban people in mudumalai, masinagudi,gudalur and waynad are suffering a lot because of this ban, if there is an emergency they have go to ooty or mysore where mysore is very easy to approach. in times of death a person from any place in Karnataka can go to funeral also. such situation has happened.so i hope gov has to come up with some solution rather putting a ban.
Absolutely shocking! This is supposed to be the ministry FOR environments and Forests???
