The forest department would put up an additional checkpost at Melkamanahalli in the Bandipur Tiger Reserve (BTR) to divide the safari crowd and cut down rapidly piling garbage. Serving and retired forest officials have confirmed that the litter lures many Bonnet macaques, langurs and wild boars. "So, weve decided to create an additional safari ticket booking counter at Melkamanahalli," BTR director Ambali Madhav said, adding that the move will also reduce the wild boar menace in the area. The new counter will open in the next three months and would cater to those coming from Bengaluru and Mysuru for safari tours in the tiger reserve.

The existing safari counter will be the pick-up point for those staying at the guest house, while tourists from Tamil Nadu will also be handled out of here. BTR follows the example of the Nagarhole Tiger Reserve, which shifted its safari counter from the guest house area to ...

The Supreme Court on Wednesday stayed the National Green Tribunals direction for planting 10 trees before cutting one tree in forest area as well as private land in the state. A bench of Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan issued notice to Cauvery Sene, Madikeri, on a special leave petition filed by Karnataka, challenging the green panels order issued on March 14, 2017.

Violating the National Green Tribunal (NGT) orders, the BBMP has axed at least 70 trees to lay a road near the Pattandur Agrahara Lake in Whitefield on Tuesday. In all, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike is planning to uproot at least 140 trees, including those near the lake to construct a link road to Varthur Kodi Main Road and 80-feet ITPL Road. According to residents, the civic body was secretly going ahead with the project in violation of the NGT orders. The green bench in its orders on maintaining buffer zones in 2017 had said that no development work can be taken up around the lakes in Bengaluru from 30 to 75 metres. "But this road is clearly violating the order and the BBMP officers are secretly doing it," said Sandeep Anirudhan, a nearby resident. Following protests from residents, the Palike had earlier suspended dumping debris to lay the road. "They had stopped the work, but since the heat has died down, they are back with the work," he said. Although the issue has been raised in all ward ...
