They Have Saved 12 Leopard Cubs, 1000s of Other Animals & educated 20,000 people about wildlife.
Concerned about the human-wildlife conflicts and the poor awareness on how to deal with it, Suresh Kumar and Jaishankar started Vanamitra to teach people to co-exist with the wild. They have reunited 12 leopard cubs with their mothers, rescued several species of wildlife and sensitized over 20, 000 people about wildlife conservation and its importance.
Come to think of it, our entire life is dependent on wildlife. The various animal species maintain the ecological balance, which keeps the food chain going. They are also in charge of the climate. Also, wildlife helps nature to sustain itself in many ways and reduces manual efforts of growing trees and taking care of them.
Amongst all those who talk and spread awareness about this situation, Vanamitra is one such organization which is quietly doing their bit to conserve the environment. It is a wildlife conservation trust which engages common people in Conservation, with a special focus on the conservation of leopards.
“Our mission is to setup a Conservation Model involving local people, so that it can be replicated across India,” Suresh Kumar says.
