Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve was established as second Tiger Reserve in the Maharashtra State, in 1994-95. It represents Southern Tropical Dry Deciduous Teak Forests in the Tiger habitat. Viable tiger population (+40) indicates great conservation value of area. It is mega-bio-diversity site in the 6-B Central Plateau Biotic province in the 6-Deccan Peninsula Bio-geographic zone. Wilderness recreation has a important role in support of management. It can directly benefit the cause of conservation, education which is achieved in the field. Conservation, Education and Nature Interpretation are integral to Eco-tourism. Tourism under certain circumstances can generate substantial pressures and affect adversely the PA values as well as create administrative problems. The first Management Plan of Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve did not go in its finest details for development of Eco- tourism. However, after about 10 years of Project Tiger, considerable progress had been achieved in protection and habitat improvement works, resulted in increase in tiger sighting. The increased tiger and other animal sighting has brought TATR on national map. The Tiger Conservation Plan prepared for 2008-09 to 2017-18 by Dr. S.H.Patil (under midterm review) provides for development of Eco-tourism as per State Eco-tourism Policy dated 20 February 2008.
