About the event:
In India, the tradition of conservation is fast becoming extinct. On one hand, the rural population still depends on forest resources, rivers and wildlife commodities for survival while on the other, several species and ecosystems have come under severe threat due to depletion of resources and global warming. Before we reach an irreversible crisis, we need to stop and start working towards conservation with a strategic approach.
Tiger Watch believes that each individual can be a leader in evolving better and newer ways in conserving resources. Environment agencies are working towards this, but most of the time, the centralised institutional system does not work at the ground level. For that, there needs to be interaction with people who are working in the field, as they are the ones who have evolved and developed the means and measures to conserve nature with the available resources in the most efficient manner, understanding the ground realities. The motive of this program is to discuss the current scenario and thrash out new ideas and strategies.
With interactive sessions and field trips, this is an exciting learning experience conducted in the conservation temple of India – Ranthambhore National Park. Participants get the unique opportunity to learn from experts like Vidya Athreya, Dharmendra Khandal, Goverdhan Rathore, forest guards, ex-poachers, and many others.
