I have often found that in my writing and research, and in my small attempts for conservation, there isn’t adequate follow-up of issues. So many issues are cyclical and require sustained engagement or monitoring. There are also issues we as a community take up but have to give up, due to our difficult field and research schedules.
Starting June 2017, I will be putting out a single pager on outstanding wildlife issues, spanning wildlife, law and policy developments. Consider this an update, a reminder for all of us as a whole, or just reading — and please use this as you deem fit.
This issue includes Culling, a new solar expansion plan that may impact the Great Indian Bustard in Gujarat, and the definition of forest, as trees are cut in the Aravallis.
Comments, feedback, ideas — on these issues and more- are welcome!
