Moradabad, Nov 19 (UNI) Eco-tourism is expected to get a major boost in the Moradabad division, following the forest department's proposed Wet Land project.
The project, initiative by the Union Tourism Ministry, envisages developing certain areas, such as neglected pond and water bodies in the region, as Wet Land.
The district forest authorities had already forwarded an action plan in this regard to the chief wildlife warden, sources said today.
Moradabad division, which touches Uttarakhand, has a good number of rivers, pond and other water bodies, which bestows it with a lot of potential for Eco-tourism.
Wild animals such as tiger, lion, elephant, crocodile, deer, besides monkey and rabbit are found in this region.
The prospects of the Wet Land project becoming a success are also bright, since the world famous Jim Corbett National Park lies in close proximity in Uttarakhand.
