Dehradun Uttarakhand

The family of elephants is thriving in about 4500 sq km, the threat in populated areas again raised concern:


In Uttarakhand, the elephant family is flourishing in an area of ​​​​about one and a half thousand square kilometers from Yamuna to Sharda river. It is a different matter that along with Corbett and Rajaji Tiger Reserves, their traditional movement routes in 12 forest divisions have been affected by human intervention. As a result, the threat of elephants is often making headlines in populated areas. Even between Dehradun and Rishikesh, the movement of elephants is more these days. Elephants reach Narendra Nagar Forest Division through this route. These days they are again threatening in populated areas. Recently, an elephant had killed a young man in Maldevta area. Obviously, considering the routes of movement of elephants in this area, both the forest department and the general public will have to be alert and alert. The forest department has definitely increased patrolling in the area, but vigilance is very important.

Kedar Dutt, Dehradun. In Uttarakhand, the elephant family is flourishing in an area of ​​​​about one and a half thousand square kilometers from Yamuna to Sharda river. It is a different matter that along with Corbett and Rajaji Tiger Reserves, their traditional movement routes in 12 forest divisions have been affected by human intervention.

The carrying capacity plays an important role in the environmental management of any area. Simply put, the holding capacity refers to the maximum number of organisms that can be held within a particular area’s environmental system. Based on this, management steps are taken. Capturing capacity is as important for protected areas as it is for other areas. After a long time, this thing has also come in the understanding of the forest department of Uttarakhand. Now it has decided to conduct an assessment of the holding capacity of all the six national parks, seven sanctuaries and four conservation reserves located in the state. Overall, it is also the need of the hour. According to which the number of other wildlife including tigers, guldars, elephants is increasing, it is also necessary in view of it. It remains to be seen how long this initiative will take off.

Till when will the road of hope be built?

Now that the election season is near in Uttarakhand, a road passing through the forest is again in the news. This is the Kandi road connecting Garhwal-Kumaon division directly, which connects Ramnagar to Kalagarh, Laldhang via Kotdwar. Since the formation of the state, this road has been in the priority of the governments, but due to environmental issues, the matter is not moving forward. Although the construction of the Kotdwar-Laldhang portion of Kandi Road is expected to take shape soon, no one knows when the Kotdwar-Kalagarh-Ramnagar portion will be constructed. Actually this part passes through Corbett Tiger Reserve and it has more environmental issues. It is a different matter that in view of the coming election season, political parties have started discussing about Kandi Road. Obviously, there is bound to be a flurry of promises regarding this in the coming days.

No need of Doon Valley notification anymore

Just remember Before the year 1989 in the Doon Valley, which has the best climate, how the chest of the hills here was cut for limestone. It is not hidden from anyone how bad the health of the environment has been affected by this. In view of all this, the Union Forest and Environment Ministry had issued a notification on February 1, 1989, banning such activities here. It continues unabated. However, some time back some relief was given in the notification, in which industries were categorized. Now that the circumstances have changed and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is mandatory for any planning, mining etc. In view of this, the matter has started rising at the higher level that in view of being EIA, this notification is no longer relevant. The Central Government has also been informed about this on behalf of the State.
