Dulu Bora is a key member of the Green Guard Nature Organisation based in Assam. He works in the tiger and elephant hill forests of Karbi Anglong, south of the Kaziranga National Park. The organisation has been involved in rescuing wild animals from the illegal wildlife trade, providing alternative livelihoods for poachers, snake charmers and other involved in exploiting wildlife, identifying, surveying biodiversity-rich areas, and creating awareness on conservation issues.
Bora lives and breathes for wildlife conservation. He has dedicated himself to the cause of wildlife conservation for the past 12 years at the cost of other ambitions and opportunities.
Your Tiger Defender is making a difference
Bora is Green Guard Nature Organisation’s main resource person for documenting and dealing with human-elephant conflict and incidences of straying leopards. Green Guard’s Human-Elephant Conflict (HEC) mitigation programme is helping to reduce human and elephant casualties in the Nagaon-Karbi Anglong areas. This is critical to the success of Protected Areas as wild species that spill over to the outside including king cobras, leopards, bears, and more lose the support of communities if conflict is allowed to escalate.
Bora has also been working to involve local college and school students and groom them to take better care of our wild heritage in the days ahead.
Help Your Tiger Defender
The Assam Forest Department is equipped with boats, weapons, cages and other key infrastructure and Dulu works with them. He, however would be able to work more efficiently if he got relatively simple inputs… cameras, binoculars, guidebooks, snake tongs and sticks for his team.
