Jabalpur-Indore-Mumbai Flight Re-started

After long suspension, Kingfisher Airlines has resumed it flight service between Jabalpur & Mumbai. First flight is likely to take-off from Mumbai Airport(BOM) at 16:15hrs and will reach Jabalpur airport at 17:30hrs. This will be non-stop flight where as at 18:00hrs it will take-off to Indore Airport (IDR) and will reach Indore at 19:00hrs. After taking passengers from Indore it will take-off at 19:55hrs and will reach Mumbai Airport at 21:10hrs.

Although flight service is going to begin at a time when tourism season is near to close in wildlife-sector but still is a good sigh for Central India Tourism. So far tourists from Mumbai have to reach either Nagpur Airport or to come Jabalpur airport via Delhi. But now its a great relief to them. It will improve business prospects and tourism prospects in Jabalpur city due to connectivity from financial capital of India. In an all it is indeed a great news and we all welcome this initiative.

Pench registers increase in wildlife population

As per the counting done by management of Pench National Park, results indicates increase in wildlife population in Pench forest. As if now, at park management is Seoni is ready with counting-data of Korai range. Data of other two ranges:Karmajhiri & Jhamtara is still awaited. Earlier published Tiger-counting data for Pench had already revealed the fact that tiger population in tiger reserve has been almost doubled. Current data of Korai range indicates almost 100% increase (in compare to year 2006 data) in population of wild dogs (Dholes), Blue Bull (Nilgai), Sambar, Spotted Deer. Data is collected from transit-lines spread on three ranges of park. It is estimated that about 746 transit lines will be observed to collect the counting-data.

It is a good indication of the park management as well as for wildlife lovers. In recent visit of our team, we talked to local naturalists and park management officials, they have also confirmed the above fact of increase in tiger population and other herbivores animals in park. Their is also increase in migration tendency among herbivores animals due to increase in tiger population. Their is possibility of migration towards Satpura National Park as its forest is almost linked with Pench forest.
