ऐसा ग्रूप बन चुका है – NTCA – जिसमे जाने माने दिग्गज tiger conservationists शामिल हैं.
A group like this has already been formed – NTCA (National Tiger Conservation Authority) – which includes well known tiger conservationists.
The point you make about the poachers giving more benefit to the forest fringe dwellers is definitely one of the major reasons and concerned agencies are working to counter this. We should actively participate in educating such people and see that they are weaned away from the temptation of easy money. Easy money is a major ill of the whole society and is the toughest nut to crack. That’s what we bloggers are supposed to do. Highlight the good and the bad and form public opinions.
First of all don’t say “your” but “our”. This is a non-profit activity open to everyone. We should visit forest areas, tiger reserve buffer areas and educate people, show them means of livelihood. You do not have to spend money for this. Just mobilize a group of like-minded friends and make this kind of visits a past-time activity. When you think of a picnic or a movie show next time, try replacing that with a visit to the nearest forest area.
