🆘 Our planet is changing at an alarming rate. Last year was a wake-up call for everyone. Loss of nature has resulted in catastrophic weather events, locusts plague, wildfires, and the Covid-19 pandemic. These are some glaring examples of nature, sending us an SOS call.
It is more evident than ever that our well-being and that of the planet are intrinsically linked, and both are under severe threat.
India, the 7th largest country globally, is home to a treasure trove of incredible wildlife and is known to be a biodiversity hotspot. But, as the country embarks on a programme of rapid development, India's wildlife, including charismatic species such as the tiger, elephant, rhino, and their habitats, face the constant threat of degradation and fragmentation.
But don't be disheartened - all is not gloomy! We are optimistic that concerted conservation actions will contribute to a more secure and sustainable future for all. Now is the time to give nature a chance to bounce back again!
