Forts and Felines: Delights of India tour and Safari
Discover India’s rich cultural heritage and explore the spectacular Taj Mahal before taking a safari to discover the elusive tiger.
When people think about the delights of India, they often think about the rich culture within communities, and the incredible wildlife diversity. In reality, there are some significant issues faced by the growing human population, and the diminishing availability of natural resources.
In the area surrounding Bandhavgarh National Park, communities struggle to find the natural resources they need such as firewood, and are increasingly encroaching on to protected national parks. The depletion of these natural resources is not sustainable. Not only does this deprive wildlife of useable habitat, it increases the risk of human versus wildlife conflicts.
To help overcome this problem, your group will work with communities around Bandhavgarh to develop alternative solutions in providing resources which are not taking away precious habitat from animals. Your group will help to redevelop and enrich local facilities, and assist with outreach conservation programs to develop understanding about why the habitat is so important.
