To get notified of YPS Webinars,
From time immemorial, our wildlife has been closely associated with our legendary beliefs, with our folklores, with our epics and with our history. Our lives would be very much poorer without these varied forms that build up the balance of nature. Wildlife preservation in fact implies active and planned wildlife management under which all forms of life would progress side by side with human progress, each in its own sphere of influence and utility and without any detriment to human interests. In fact, it is with this end in view that wildlife sanctuaries and national parks have been established and developed in suitable localities all over the country.
In the year 1952, with a view to preserve the fauna of India, particularly to take urgent steps to prevent extinction of any species, the Government of India established an Indian Board of Wild Life (IBWL). The Board has since been doing pioneering work to arouse public consciousness in favor of wildlife preservation.
In order to arouse a general awakening, the Indian Board of Wild Life (IBWL) decided to observe a Wildlife Week from October 2 – 8 every year and organize different activities related to wildlife conservation to commemorate this week.
Every year between October 2 and October 8, Governments, environmentalists, activists, educators and others organize different activities to accelerate the awareness of wildlife conservation among people. India, being a mega-storehouse of various species, is also able to manage several conferences, awareness programs, and public meetings among nature lovers. Schools and educational institutions organize events such as wildlife related movie screening, painting competitions / essay writings / debates for young children with wildlife as the theme.
