Uttar Pradesh is working to enhance wildlife tourism in Bundelkhand. The actions are anticipated to improve the state’s possibilities of development and employment.
Director of Bundelkhand University’s Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management, Dr Sunil Kabia said, “There is a lot of potential to develop wildlife tourism in the geographical location of Bundelkhand region. Being located in the central part of the country, it has also been developed as a circuit by connecting it to other tourist destinations. The schemes that the government is working on in this area will attract tourists here as well as promote employment and development possibilities.”
While the Chitrakoot Tiger Reserve was authorized, work has already begun there, the Lalitpur Bear Reserve application procedure is still ongoing. Construction is underway to create the largest zoo in Uttar Pradesh in Jhansi’s Garhmau. By enhancing facilities in this region rich in natural diversity, the government hopes to attract tourists.
The UP cabinet has given the go-ahead for the initiative to turn the Ranipur Wildlife Sanctuary in Chitrakoot into a tiger reserve, and construction has already begun. The area where this tiger reserve will be built up will be roughly 529 sq km. In two years, this tiger reserve should be completed and turn into a significant hub for wildlife tourism in Bundelkhand.
After its completion, employment prospects are anticipated to rise as well. Additionally, plans are being made to establish a bear conservation facility in Lalitpur. Its proposal has been made locally and transmitted to the headquarters due to the presence of several bears in the Madavara area.
