It is Our Civil Duty to make the Wildlife tourism in India Thrive on the Protection of Wildlife

February 4, 2010

India earns a greater chunk of foreign currency from its travel and tourism industry. India having panoramic beauty of nature and its colorful artifices has established its identity as one of the must-to-be-explored destinations among the wildlife lovers.

India is the best mirror to unity in diversity. It has not only been the hub of varied tongues, cultures, religions but also the home to rich wildlife. One may plod on the sandy surface of deserts under scorching sunlight, bask into the soothing sunshine when the surging waves thrash on the seashore, take a drink to the pristine beauty of snow-crested mountains. But for wildlife lovers, the reserve forests of India are the main attractions to chance upon mammals, reptiles, birds and many rare species of animals, some of which are on the way to extinction.

Till a decade ago, India was the safe abode of a wide range of wildlife animals. The serenity of the reserve forests and sanctuaries is the perfect ambience for their existence and survival. People out of greed for their loaves and fishes or superstitious beliefs are endangering their lives. Indian government has enforced stringent laws that have borne not so much relevant results, as far as the urgency for wildlife protection is concerned.

Indian tourism is booming. And, the wildlife of India has a vital role to play in this field. The tourism industry has taken initiatives to set up hotels nearby forest areas, make safari arrangements for wildlife travelers to explore the forests. Keeping in mind the pouring of foreign money, the tourism industry is eyeing on providing more facilities for the comfort and convenience of foreign travelers.

It is disheartening that the nexus between poachers and forest guards is playing a fly in the ointment and thwart most of the efforts to spread a canopy of protection over the wild species especially the endangered ones. The number of tigers is dwindling at a cracking pace. A good number of various species are facing either rapid or slow death with every passing day. It is the ripe time to raise our voice unanimously against the brutal act of poaching and contribute in our own way to boost the development of wild life tourism in India.
