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

 

There is a crying need for help for the up-gradation of conservation and preservation laws in India. That is only the beginning; better allocation of resources, increased budget, stricter regulations, improved leadership and other long term solutions. Many good organizations in India are doing impactful work and raising awareness to the best of their ability. Still, 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 good fate.
