The Constitution of India states,

“It shall be the duty of every citizen of India to protect and improve the natural environment including forests, lakes, rivers and wildlife and to have compassion for living creatures.”

India is one of the few nations of the world that has such a systematically defined fundamental duty set for its citizens in the country’s constitution. And yet, the flora and fauna of the country keep losing the battle of survival everyday as India races to become an economically sound and technologically advanced country.

India’s Endangered is a website about endangered plants and animals of India. It is an attempt to highlight the present status of these species through news, views and valuable information so that people are aware and with the economic progress the ecological responsibility is not forgotten.

  2. Hi, Atula! First of all let me wish you for your sustained efforts on the endangered nature information. This letter is to seek your advice. I happened to see your write up regarding the ban on sound pollution Jim Corbett National Park that disrupted the peace of the forest. In this regard I would like to seek your guidance. My residence is in between the Mrugavani National Park (west of Hyderabad) and a firing range. Though I have my selfishness in eliminating this firing range. I would like to mention that when ever firing starts a huge flocks of peacocks, patrages, coels and many more birds scream and howls due to the heavy firing. In this regard I would like to take your suggestion as a nature lover do I have any chance of restricting then through court of law? Pl reply. Thanking you…

    1. Thank you so much for your comment Mr. Dev. Also, I must say you are very lucky to be living in such close vicinity to a national park. Regarding your problem, I understand that the firing range may be disturbing the animals quite a lot especially birds and deers. What you can do is write to the forest department about it. Usually when a firing range is close to a forest area, the forest department has to give a “No Objection” certificate to the army. If the certificate is in place, the range has valid reason to be there. You can give your complain in writing to the forest department so that they make sure that the sound level is well within the permitted decibel level. In Corbett’s case, it was an NGO that had filed a PIL and the high court had ordered the ban. So you can also file a PIL.
      If the range is indeed disrupting the peace of the animals, the forest department should take notice of it and do the needful.
