No proposal to build wildlife corridors in Aravalis, says RTI response
| Sunday | 24th March, 2019
There are specific guidelines to build wildlife corridors if any linear infrastructure project is planned to cut through forests or eco-sensitive zones.
But the forest department does not have any plan to build wildlife corridors on the roads that pass through the Aravalis, according to an RTI response.“This is to inform you that there is no proposal in this office for making wildlife corridor in eco-sensitive areas in the Aravalis,” states the RTI response.
We don’t have any proposal to build a wildlife corridor, as these are very wide and it is not possible to build them in Haryana.
“When the Gurgaon-Faridabad Road was widened, the forest department had raised concerns over the presence of wildlife in the area.
While two leopards were killed on the Gurgaon-Faridabad Road, five were killed on NH-8.
