In a move to boost wildlife tourism, Maharashtra government launched star gazing activity in the Pench Tiger Reserve near Nagpur. Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife) of Pench Tiger reserve M S Reddy said the unique concept of including star gazing with wildlife tourism was probably the first of its kind in the country.

“Pench being a Tiger Reserve spanning over 700 square kilometers has very little light pollution. Villages spanning the landscape don’t have very elaborate street lighting facilities; hence, the site is wonderful for stargazing.”
