Conservation and Preservation in India

India has the second-largest human population, which is 1/6th of the world. Many of the population live in villages, and many of the adjacent areas around the villages are close to nature. As one can imagine, there is a human-wildlife conflict in various forms, and a lot of the outcomes don’t end up in favour of wildlife. Merely 4% of India's total landmass is dedicated to wildlife, and the pressure is growing.

There is a crying need of help for the up-gradation of conservation and preservation laws in India. That is only the beginning; there needs better allocation of resources, increased budget, stricter laws, improved leadership and other long term solutions. Much good organization in India are doing impactful work and raising awareness to the best of their ability, but there is always room for improvement and more support. There is always plenty of opportunity for internships, service learning and meaningful community engagement.

The silver lining is India's national animal — the tiger has seen a population increase from 1200 in 2014 to 2967 in 2018. However, other potential endangered animals do not share the same fate.
