Detail Description About Activity
Environmental degradation during these present days has become a Global Issue. Degradation of Land and Forest, Extinction of Wild Animals, diminishing Biological diversity and Raise of Temperature are the acute problems and the vital cause of Environmental degradation. It is a broad concept which includes pollution of various biological and physical components of the planet as a result of which the entire world is going to be destroyed. In this juncture, we have thought it wise and gainful to work on the endangered species and trying for enrichment of Forest, restoration of degraded lands, Conservation of Nature, Biodiversity, Control of Pollution, Restoration of Environment and Climate Change. On the other hand, the lives of all Wild Animals like Tigers, Elephants, Bears, Deer and Wild Bores can be saved. All the village Forests are being developed which will generate fresh Air, clean Water and create a congenial atmosphere for the lives of all. Hence, vigorous awareness campaigns with appropriate actions are being taken in a regular manner on Restoration of Forest, protection of Environment and conservation of Biodiversity.
ARASMIN is an active member of the “Wildlife Institute of India” and as such we are trying our level best to protect the Wild Animals like Elephants, Tigers, Wild Birds, Peacocks and migrated Birds so as to avoid different types of Natural Calamities and en-hazards in order to accelerate the human life-cycle. Wildlife animal prominently means to the Elephant only which is the only friend of Human beings and Environment and create “Green Balaya” in the Jungle. It has lots of contributions for the human life-cycle, biodiversity and ecosystem. They play the most important and faithful role to Save the Nature. The bare survival of this world depends upon the wide range of population of Elephants. But, all the anti-social elements are involved with Elephant poaching, Tiger poaching, Deer poaching and hunting of different Animals and Birds. The most innocent herbivorous species “The Elephants” which is honoured as the National Heritage Animal of India are in endangered situation and looking for their bare survival. They are the spent victims of Human abuse and unlawful attacks, where as since time immemorial, all the living beings are staying in one Ecosystem and the life of Human beings is intertwined with Nature and all wildlife animals. Hence, it is apt prioritizing to save this precious wildlife animal. Since last seven years we have been working in two Elephant corridors in our Kandhamal District and one Tiger Reserve is also adjacent to our area of operation. Moreover, we do have our field office in the Elephant Corridor site at Urladani Gram Panchayat under M. Rampur Block of Kalahandi District where we are taking the following strategies to save their lives:
Generally, the Tribal Communities reside in and out the Forest Area. The Conservation and Management of Forest and Wildlife Habitats mainly depend upon them. If, they want to devastate, no Government or no other forces can check them. Hence, to obtain the whole-hearted support and earnest cooperation of the community, we have taken the following strategies to save the elephants as well as to save their lives:
Awareness campaigns are being done at Rushikulya River mouth and Astarang Sea-shore area of Bay of Bengal to save and protect the Marine Mammals like Shark, Whales, Dolphins and other endangered fish species and Marine Ecosystem. The relation of Blue economy to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the local context of Odisha as the world’s largest bay and the needs of locally-led efforts for blue growth are being discussed. Blue Economy is the new approach of sustainability in which the world acknowledged the role of our Oceans as the Carbon sink stabilizer of global climate, water cycle regulator and the catalyst of economic progress and human well-being. Discussions are being done on UN Sustainable Development Goals 14 and 15 which are very important .that, only a healthy Marine Ecosystem can offer ecosystem goods and services to increasing rate of population. The following activities are under progress and implementation for the Healthy Marine Ecosystem and to provide different Livelihood support to the poor Marine dweller Stake-holder communities:
