Our Future Plans in Protected Area Conservation
The several Wildlife Sanctuaries and National Parks in the foothills of the Himalaya historically was a continuous forest separating the hills from the plains and acting as a migration passage for several wild animals. With human settlements and development now we have small confined protected areas where the inter breeding among the particular species of a handful of animals create weak gene characters.
The elephant is the only mighty animal who has maintained short migration with continuous conflict with human beings. Even leopards frequent the adjoining villages and tea estates. At some spots there are small surviving territorial forests. We still have a chance of return by involving the local people into community tourism initiatives between the protected areas namely Bardia, Chitwan and Koshi Tapu in Nepal, continuing with Mahananda, Garumara, Jaldapara and Buxa in West Bengal, further continuing with Manas, Orang, Nameri and Kaziranga in Assam and Kamlang Wildlife Sanctuary,Namdapha National Park in Arunachal Pradesh.... helping them to create extension forests to the protected areas. Gradually, mature these initiatives with wildlife management creating community wildlife parks and much later use them as connectors between the several protected areas.
