Community and Conservation
- In India many traditional communities still live in the forests and depend on forest products for their livelihood. These communities are working hand in hand with the government to conserve forests.
- In Sariska Tiger Reserve, Rajasthan, villagers fought against mining activities.
- In Alwar district of Rajasthan local communities belonging to five villages have set their own rules and regulations in 1,200 hectares of forest land. They have named it as the Bhairodev Dakav 'Sonchuri'. Hunting is not allowed in these lands and outside encroachment is prohibited.
