Wayanad: Entry restrictions for tourists into Muthanga and Tholpetty wildlife sanctuaries from March 9 to April 15, 2023.

The principal chief forest conservator issued a notice banning tourist activities here, citing the increasing number of wild animals moving from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu to the forests in Wayanad.

With summer around the corner, the threat of forest fire also persists, with drought continuing to drain water bodies in Wayanad. Recently, minor forest fires were recorded at various spots in the Wayanad wildlife sanctuary.

Tourists are restricted to ensure the free movement of the animals seeking food and water in the Wayanad forest region. The move aims to tackle human-animal confrontations and thereby ensure the safety of the travellers.
