Last Wilderness Foundation in association with the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve Forest Department conducted the 13th leg of the Village Awareness programme in the buffer zone of the tiger reserve, in order to sensitise the students about the bio-diversity that exists around them and the need to protect the same. During the course of the programme, the students were taken to the park wherein they were initiated into the world of wilderness and exposed to the various sights and sounds of the forest. The safari is followed by screening of the movie ‘The Truth About Tigers’ and an interactive session about conservation measures and what each one of them can do in their capacity to give shape to these measures.
The programme undertaken from 9th- 11th December 2017 witnessed interaction with almost 200 students covering 7 villages located in the Panpatha region of the park.
The Village Kids’ Awareness programme, initiated in the year 2012 aims to further aid conservation with the help of communities and to undertake the cause of awareness, understanding, sensitisation, among those who share their space with the tiger.
