Demonstrating a " total disregard for Indigenous rights and public wishes ," the Trump administration on Friday moved to expedite oil and gas exploration in previously protected lands in Alaska. The Interior Department published a  notice  in the Federal Register announcing a public comment period and plans to draft an environmental impact statement for creating a leasing program for the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

Better management of the ‘buffer zones’ around reserves is the need of the hour, writes Poonam Dhanwatey, Indian wildlife conservationist known for her work mitigating human-tiger conflict and co-founder of the not-for-profit organisation Tiger Research and Conservation Trust. Each visit to Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve evokes a smile at the realisation of how popular the reserve is. The once verdant forests of Central India, only parts of which are protected, contain sizeable breeding populations of tigers. Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve is one of six tiger reserves in Maharashtra state. It is surrounded by a sea of humanity, with a few strings of green corridors acting as a lifeline connecting it to other smaller reserves in the area. The odyssey of this ...
