Sadly, this appears to be the only solution.

Noted and thanks for the info. Seems some good things are happening there. Do understand problems - not everyone will be happy moving. However, the road can be changed, and that may help some of those reluctant folks.

Noted and shared I'm sure that the move is not going to be an easy one, however there is change for the better of the tigers taking place which is a good thing. I'm sure that all will settle and things will be better. Thanks for sharing.

Fence in the humans all around the world and let the animals go free to live their lives.

It seems very reasonable, but we have to reserve judgement and keep a very close eye on how it plays out. India has a lot of trouble with its corruption throughout its society. Its reputation of keeping its promises is very bad indeed, especially to the poorest people such is the tribal villagers. Relocation will be voluntary, but in India there is absolutely no guarantee unless outsiders are actually there to witness this. When they relocate, the should be compensated and helped with new housing, but again this should be closely monitored or the money will end up in the pockets of some officials somewhere down the line, just as it did with the money for school meals.

It is in the interest of the tigers that these people relocate voluntarily and are compensated for giving up their livelihood. If they are just thrown off and have no means to feed themselves, the tribes have no alternative than to go back, try to cut out some land to farm in the park and resort to poaching again.

We support this cause at Care2, and I hope we do, we also have the responsibility to see that it turns out well for both tigers and villagers.
