Aravali Conservation Campaign
14 April 2021 @ 8:00 am – 20 April 2021 @ 5:00 pm IST
From 14-20th April we will be hosting a Aravali Conservation Campaign working on the grassroots level with 9 villages. This area of the Southern Aravalis is the last dense green forest in the region and a biodiversity hotspot, but it is being devastated by intentionally set forest fires. This campaign has been designed to stop the forest fires from starting this year by closely engaging the local tribal community, biodiversity and community organizing experts and the Forest Department.
This campaign is a unique opportunity to experience how a community-based conservation initiative works at the grassroots level. Moreover, in this process your very PRESENCE makes a difference, you coming in person makes a statement that this forest and these mountains DO matter and MUST be conserved as LIVING HERITAGE for generations to come. You’ll also get the chance to trek daily as a part of a large data collection drive which will lay a foundation for conservation. Finally – this is an opportunity to SUPPORT THE TRIBAL COMMUNITY that has been working day to CONSERVE THEIR FOREST, THE BASIS OF THEIR CULTURE.
