Communities living near the edge of protected forest still depend on forests for their livelihood keeping them in a constant conflict with the wild due shrinking forest lands and their resources.
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.
