pl. a short speech on conservation of wild life urgently

Wildlife Conservation
Nature has always helped mankind flourish. But it is not just what immense bounties nature has given to you. It is what you as a human being give back in return. An important question to ask yourself is, am I concerned about nature. Does saving the wildlife and taking necessary actions for those on the brink of extinction mean something to me? If it does, then come and join hands with Indian wildlife organisations to help save mother earth.

The nature projects and programmes started by the Indian government like the Project Tiger, Nature Camps and Jungle Lodges have been started to promote wildlife awareness among the common man. The projects besides preserving our natural heritage, also encourage eco-tourism.

Significance of Wildlife Conservation
The wild creatures are a nature's gift which help embellish the natural beauty by their unique ways of existence. But due to growing deforestation and negligence, their is a threat to the wildlife and it will require special attention to save the world from loosing its green heritage.

Some of the government initiatives carried out to preserve this natural heritage include Project Tiger, one of the most successful efforts in preserving and protecting the Tiger population. Gir National Park in Gujarat is the only existing habitat for the nearly extinct Asiatic Lions in India. The Kaziranga Sanctuary in Assam is a prime example of an effort to save the endangered Rhinoceros. Likewise, Periyar in Kerala is doing appreciable work to preserve the wild Elephants while Dachigam National Park is fast at work to save the Hangul or Kashmiri Stag.

Project Tiger
Launched in 1973-74, it has been one of the most successful ventures in recent times to protect the striped predator. Under the same, a few sites in India were identified and named as Tiger Reserves. Special efforts were then carried out in these reserves to save the tiger. Some of the main aims of Project Tiger are as follows.

  • Elimination of all kinds of human activity in the core zones and minimisation of activity in the buffer zone.
  • Assessing the damage done to the eco-system by human activity and efforts to recover it to its original form.
  • Monitoring the changes taking place and studying the reasons for the same.
Initially just 9 reserves were brought under the project, a number which was increased to 27 in the year 2003. Recently a few more sites have been added to the list.

Plans are in progress to develop wireless communication systems to curb the problem of poaching. Steps like the shifting of villages outside the core area, control of livestock grazing in tiger reserves and researching data about environmental changes have also shown positive impact.
