Corbett Tiger Reserve Area Restricted from Noise Pollution

Our environment is bellowed with many wildlife species but the continuous human cruel efforts have suppressed the natural voices of these wild animals. Since the deteriorating species of wild lives including tigers are the root cause of misbalancing of the life cycle of environment, many sanctuaries and reserves have been established to preserve them so as to avoid further diminishing. Corbett National Park, Gir National Park, Kaziranga and Ranthambore National Park are among out of those natural habitats for wild species. Corbett National Park Map Apart from that many other efforts are being pulled by Indian government so that the people of India may be aware of the importance of the wildlife conservation. Acting on the same initiative, the directive of the Uttarakhand high court has imposed a blanket ban on noise pollution in a radius of 500 meters around the Jim Corbett National Park and have declared the region as a “complete silence zone”.

Tiger in Corbett In response to the PIL filed by a local NGO, the two-judge bench of the high court gave the instruction of the same. This decision is made for the sake of total silence at the restricted area of the wild species for their natural and protected living at India’s best known tiger reserves. This decision will bring salutary effects on the surroundings of the reserves where tourists throng and hold parties and become the cause of disturbance for animals. As opposed to the genuine tiger lovers, who perform a silent venture by taking the forest department permission, these tourists create unlimited annoyance to the wild species. In the PIL, Ramnagar Himalayan Yuva Grameen Vikas Sansthan appealed to Chief Justice Barin Ghosh and Justice U C Dhyani to limit noise in the vicinity of the wildlife habitat. The appeal was totally against the sound amplification devices that disturb the peace of the endangered species. The appeal also showed concern regarding the violation of the resort owners of the forest areas who hold events like parties and marriage receptions. The field director Ranjan Mishra firmly believes, the decision of banning noise pollution is taken under the Environment Protection Act, 1986. This blanket ban is one of the major steps in support of the natural conservation and so the wildlife activists are welcoming this decision.  As a tourist we should understand our responsibility and make our trip to tiger reserves to admire the natural beauty and creativity but not to disturb the innocent wild beings of Indian reserves. Corbett National Park is one of the amazing tiger reserves which will surely wake up your soul to understand the importance of the wildlife conservation. The amazing beauty, naturalistic environment and the royal appearance of the jungle king is going to win your heart. You must make a royal visit to such a lovely sanctuary keeping in mind about their natural way of living and should avoid noise pollution here.

Corbett E-Eye Mission to Conserve Forest Life Tabbing Jungle Activities

Tiger in Corbett

In spite of being too many wild sanctuaries and tiger reserves in India, the hunting down has not faced any kind of restrictions till today and so large varieties of wild animals are falling prey to the ferociousness of human beings. To overcome this deadly issue and for the sake of wildlife conservation, especially to the tigers in India, the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) has launched a pilot project in Jim Corbett National Park for 24*7 surveillance of the park that has included the latest high definition cameras. The project has been christened as project E-eye (electronic eye, a software based system where 10 high resolution thermal and infra red cameras are mounted over the towers at the area of 350 sq km of most sensitive zones of the park in Uttarkhand. The cameras have the efficiency to capture the images of the objects weighing more than 20 kg and provide alerts in case of any crossing over of the boundaries. The captured Images and alerts are sent to the control room in the park and the NTCA office in Delhi.

Kanha National Park Tiger The cameras are intelligently placed all over the park covering area of 350 km of the area and are controlled by NTCA officials sitting in Delhi. Due to shortage of field staffs it was getting difficult to keep an eye on the park activities especially if it is witnessing any turbulent one and the installation of the cameras brought down the control over the infiltration in the area radically. The cost accrued to this project is around Rs. 3.5 Crores. The DIG and joint director of NTCA, S.P. Yadav articulates- “It is for the first time in the world that a surveillance system of this type is being used in any national park. The project was launched some five-six months back to check poaching of tigers in the park.” Further he added, these digital cameras are the great assistant to check infiltration, poaching and illegal mining in the area. As soon as the control room receives any messages or alerts of people or any vehicle inside the premises; and if found any kind of suspicious activities; an alert team is sent to the location. The cameras keep the vigilance 24*7 and function perfectly even during night. The NTCA is planning to replicate the project in other sensitive areas of India’s other tiger reserves once it was initialized at Uttar Pradesh border keeping in mind the preservation of 1,706 tigers in India. Earlier, numerous attempts have been made so as to minimize the unauthorized venture of people like arresting them and preventing any more accesses to the protected zone of the jungle. The whole project of NTCA was being assisted by a Pune based company, Binomial Solutions Private Limited that beholds a group of engineering and management graduates. It was the love for the animals that inspired Ravikant Singh, CEO of the company; the concept of digital vigilance of the park even at night and at several kilometers away through E-eye. It is a full proof anti-poaching system that collects information, processes, filters and then sends as alerts to the control rooms. The HD cameras have one more feature of capturing the thermal and normal image of the body mass irrespective of the presence of dense forests or adverse weather conditions.

Thus, through the implementation of this latest technology using HD cameras, we have witnessed one more initiative for wildlife conservation of India.

Wildlife Conservation -The First and Foremost Effort to Save Environment

India is an amazing land stuffed with beauty, prosperity, tradition and out of all the vividness in nature’s wilderness. It is the only land where one can discover to surpass the variety of species and living organisms residing in their natural and beautiful habitat. With incessantly raising of urban effects in our daily life, we are getting deviated from natural environment and its conservatism. From the last 50 years, the rates of our national species are declining that is eventually misbalancing our global atmosphere. At the turn of the last century, there were an estimated 45,000 tigers living in India forests but since then the rate declined to 1411 which is surely a serious issue. Keeping wildlife conservation in mind, many wildlife reserves were established that promise to maintain the counts of our national animal and other species. Save Tiger The wildlife reserves are so designed to maintain natural habitat for different species so that they can survive independently and with full protection. These natural habitats are being popularized in the form of national parks in India.

With almost 89 national parks, 13 bio reserves and 400+ wildlife sanctuaries, the objective of wildlife protection is towards a successful steep. Some of the glittering gems of this protective crown are Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve Park, Ranthambore National Park, Bandhavgarh National Park, Kanha National Park and many others. But by simply establishing many wildlife reserves; do our duty ends? Are we really sure that our mission “save wildlife”, is emerging with positive results or do we really find great changes in terms of wildlife protection? We are still answerless since we all know we are not becoming essential part of these movements. As a responsible citizen, it is indeed our duty to take active participation in wildlife conservation in India, directly or indirectly. You must have come across the “Aircel- NDTV India-Save the Tiger” initiative campaign that motivated thousands of people across India to come forward in support of this noble cause. The results were really amazing and people took active part in this campaign in the form of e-polling, advertising and fund raising. But there are still many more steps needed to follow so as to save wildlife in our country apart from such campaigns. Here are some of the steps we must follow to make our responsible efforts in terms of wildlife conservation: - Encourage people to stop hunting while making any jungle trip and should not disturb any wild animals knowingly or unknowingly during their jungle expedition. - The process of deforestation has minimized the local habitat of the wild creatures and so we should make people aware of the necessities of the forests in our environment. - For that purpose, the misuse of papers and woods should be prohibited so that we can minimize the extent of cutting of the trees. - Plantation can be the most perfect and preferred option for us in terms of spreading greenery and eco-conservatism. Since with increase in trees and plantation we can create a suitable and healthy atmosphere around us and around the wild lives. - Some other indirect ways are campaigning, promotions and advertisements, discussions, write-ups like articles and blogs can be very useful for the general awareness of the people around us. Focusing on wildlife conservation is not only being channelized for the purpose of save tiger mission but this can bring global effects on our environment and our eco-system. When our attempts of balancing the life cycle are encouraged, these efforts in due courses are for our own benefits. Saving wildlife is saving the environment and thus saving ourselves only. Therefore, come forward for this great cause and make small or large steps to protect our environment to protect us.

“Save the Tigers”- An Initiative that Turned into a Revolution

“Only 1411 left”. Have you ever heard of this famous phrase? Of course you must have. From the last one year we are coming across a different kind of campaign which proudly focuses on tiger conservatism. A renowned mission to save the environment and save the continuous extinguishing species of tigers especially the Bengal tigers which are the most glorifying species of our country and consequently became the most concerned part of the movement. It has been estimated that the current population of tigers in India is 50% out of world’s tiger population. Keeping this in mind, this issue strictly forces us about the coming years of their survival if the rate will be still deteriorating? In collaboration with WWF-India, Aircel-NDTV started the “Save the Tiger” campaign and took an outstanding initiative keeping a healthy thought in mind to support the cause. The campaign encouraged many individuals including the celebrities like Amitah Bacchan and MS Dhoni to join the campaign and many promotional activities and advertisements were followed for the same.  A special show hosted by anchor Vikram Chandra from NDTV, invited many tiger experts and stakeholders to voice their opinions and appeals to the general public to generate their opinions and support the noble cause. Tiger in Corbett Superstar Amitabh Bacchan showed his support by mentioning its importance in his blog. With multiple SMS poll, Aircel raised this issue and created awareness among the public to understand the importance of tiger conservation in our country.

With multimedia campaigns and series of special tiger programs, the strongest media campaign on NDTV highlighted the urgency of “Save our Tigers” effort. By telecasting these special programs, they focused on the situation and the challenges facing our national animal. These noble attempts showcased multiple positive responses from the public and the result was really outstanding and unexpected. Further, many social networking sites too joined this campaign and created their own blogs and sites which were supported by many users in response for the same. Ultimately it created a lot of awareness among the people of India and today almost each and every individual is devoting their valuable opinions to support the campaign. It effectively aroused the importance of many tiger reserves and wildlife sanctuaries established in various parts of the country. Surveys define that the rate of visiting these sanctuaries, including the Jim Corbett National Park or Ranthambore National Park; increased in the last one year. The list of visitors also included the numbers of Indians who earlier neglected their own treasure and keeping the ideal objective in mind, many people approached to raise funds to protect our tiger from extinction. The mission to save the environment does not end here but it is just the beginning. We will have to try harder to protect our environment and our national animal. Being a responsible citizen of India, the zeal and energy should continue to remain within us and we should make multiple attempts to carry this campaign further so that each and every person should be aware of the importance of wildlife and the natural environment for our own survival. Their attempts will include everything, right from campaigning, promotion, raising funds and many more. We will thus see a different earth which is rotating around safe and protected.
