West Bengal tourism project to straddle jumbo corridor


A much-touted tourism project by the state government is threatening a key elephant corridor in north Bengal.

Coming up on a 90-acre plot near Sylee tea estate, 20 kilometres from Malbazar, the project is coming up on a corridor used by the jumbos for movement between Mahananda Wildlife Sanctuary and Kalimpong forest division.

Though the project components are yet to be finalized, the land has already been identified in compartment number 8 of the tea estate, also known as Nayabasti.
