Methods of Conservation of Forests Resources and Wildlife by Management

Joint Forest management, Afforestation Social Forestry. Public awareness programs concerning water, soil, air forest and other resources.

Public Awareness Program towards Conservation of Forests, Water, Soil, Air and other resources. Many people do not understand the close ties between human and the environment.

There is a need to increase people's sensitivity and involvement in finding a solution for environment and development programs. Education can present people with environmental and ethical awareness, values, attitudes, skills, and behavior needed for conservation of natural resources, water, soil, air, forests etc leading to a sustainable development. We must involve school children and college students in environmental health, safe drinking water, sanitation, food, forests, and wildlife.

We must also set up training programs for industry, universities, non-government organization (N60) and village-level workers to train people in environmental management.

There is also a need for a more active public debate on the environment by working with media, theater group, entertainment, and advertising industries.

The Importance of Forest Conservation

Conserve Ecosystem by encouraging Eco-tourism

It is a novel concept in outdoor education, particularly educating the youths (school and college students) and the tribal people about the sustainable use and conservation of our natural resources.

Eco-tourism is a way to conserve our ecosystems, such as forests, never along with soil and air.

Visits to forests, water bodies, observing the duality of water, listening to the bark of wild animals and songs of the birds in a forest could generate a love and compassion for the natural resources and wildlife around us.

Ecotourism brings in long-term economic stability, develops a sense of belonging to the environment with moral and ethical responsibilities Mini Concerts and Film Shows.

Film Show and Media

Education for the well being of our natural resources, healthy practices, discouraging the abuse of village ponds, and river cleaning of sewage and waste recycling, maintenance of healthy food and safe drinking water, and role of the forest in causing "rain through the water cycle and maintaining climate are some of the components of a wholesome human-environment relationship.

This could be projected at the rural and semi-urban levels through the media of film-shows and local open concerts to generate effective public awareness.

Provide Vocational Skills

Provide vocational skills in honey making, basket-weaving, medicinal herb gathering, sustainable fishing, which in turn provides income to local companies. Women can be drawn into handicrafts making and tourist management.

Village level in Environmental Monitoring

Youths could form a society or environmental club to monitor the abuse of ponds and drinking water bodies, check the outlets of industrial effluents into nearby rivers or“ streams from which they fish or draw water for drinking and reduce the levels of toxic smoke released into the atmosphere.
