"Bor is the 47th tiger reserve in the country and the sixth tiger reserve of Maharashtra. With Project Tiger coverage, the reserve would receive funding and technical support which would strengthen tiger conservation, besides eco-development to benefit fringe people, Javadekar's office said."
New Delhi, July 1 - Minister of State for Environment, Forests and Climate Change Prakash Javadekar Tuesday notified the Bor Sanctuary, New Bor Sanctuary and the New Bor Extended Wildlife Sanctuary in Maharashtra as a critical tiger reserve.

Bor is the 47th tiger reserve in the country and the sixth tiger reserve of Maharashtra. With Project Tiger coverage, the reserve would receive funding and technical support which would strengthen tiger conservation, besides eco-development to benefit fringe people, Javadekar's office said.

Javadekar, also the chairperson of the National Tiger Conservation Authority, has approved the recommendations of the authority's technical committee for a project from the Wildlife Institute of India to establish ecological baselines for long-term monitoring of tigers, co-predators and prey species in the Dibang Wildlife Sanctuary and adjoining landscapes in Arunachal Pradesh.
