Communities living on the fringe of India’s forests have lived symbiotically with their surroundings for centuries. Today, as their forests are depleting, so too is their way of life and sustenance. Now at cross purposes with the forest, they are forced to compete for survival, putting a strain on the ecosystem.
Communties for Conservation
Providing alternate livelihood to communities from man-animal conflict areas goes a long way in supporting wildlife conservation. Income generated by creating wildlife inspired souvenirs and products reduces their dependence on the forests thus reducing conflicts. This also changes their outlook towards wildlife conservation as path to prosperity rather than a hinderance. Meet our community partners who constantly strive towards wildlife conservation through livelihood initiatives benefitting both man and the wild.
