Ask Us Questions

A buffer zone is an area within a sanctuary or a national park that is used to separate forest areas from residential developments. It is similar to a green belt, which is often used in agriculture, parks and other recreational spaces. Recently, the state government of Maharashtra issued a notification for the buffer zone of the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR). This zone will put an end to human interference and mining activities within the reserve. These zones are created to prevent damage to the local ecosystem.
