Traffic Trouble!


Unsustainable eco-tourism is becoming rampant in tiger reserves, particularly in Central India. It is not uncommon to see an entire row of jeeps harassing a tiger until the animal gets agitated. These vehicles compete with one another for a better view of the animal, and are often driven rashly, increasing the chances of accidents (a tigress in one of these parks has already lost a cub to a speeding vehicle). It wouldn't be wrong to conclude that tourism, at least in these areas has been causing more harm than benefit of late.
