Jaipur: Rajasthan would "examine and follow" the Supreme Court direction stopping tourist activity in the core zones of tiger reserves across the country, state forest minister Bina Kak said.

"We will examine and follow the Supreme Court directions. We have Ranthambhore national park in Sawaimadhopur and Sariska in Alwar district. Wildlife lovers visit these areas and also help the authorities in different manner," Kak said.

Wildlife is a prime attraction for the tourism sector in the state, which is one of the main industries here and the order is likely to impact the industry, Kak said.
