MoEF has recommended for the survey and exploration of uranium in Amrabad Tiger Reserve
12 July 2019 Current Affairs: The Union Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) has recommended for the survey and exploration of uranium in Amrabad Tiger Reserve, Telangana. 
The exploration was approved by the Atomic Minerals Directorate. The approval comes inspite of the contrary reports by forest officials after field inspections which was conducted in 2016. The proposal sought permission to explore uranium in 76 km in Amrabad and Udumilla regions, besides 7 km in the adjoining Nagarjunasagar Tiger Reserve in Andhra Pradesh. The exploration is for the use in nuclear power generation.

Disturbance to ecosystem:
Mining for exploration may cause destruction and disturbance of ecosystems and habitat fragmentation. This does not recommend any permission for the proposal. The Forest Officer of the Nagarjunasagar Tiger Reserve has made similar recommendations, listing threat to several species in Schedule I and II of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, besides others.
