"If you want to witness such moments on safari, you have to be patient and willing to sacrifice any other sightings you hear off. 1/4

This particular day we spent almost 7 hours with this #lion called Bob Marley (notice the dreads under his mane). He would get up every 20 minutes or so and dig the burrow deeper. We had to be ready throughout as the warthog in the burrow could dash out any moment. 2/4
It was coming to the end of the day and we were almost losing hope when it started raining heavy. Bob Marley used this to his advantage as the burrow filled with water and he started splashing the water inside the burrow which confused the #warthogs and made them rush out. 3/4

We are delighted to welcome Ms. Abhilasha Hegde to #TeamCWS! She joins our Media and Outreach team as Media Fellow.

In her words, "I wish to tell stories which educate various audiences and address urgent concerns about nature and wildlife through my lens and creativity."
"I grew up in an idyllic village tucked deep into the dense forests of the Western Ghats of Karnataka. Since childhood, I've been curious and fascinated about nature and wildlife. I slowly started expressing my nature tales through photography, paintings and other forms of art."
"Even though I graduated as an information science engineer and started my career as a software developer, the curious and creative bug inside me finally dragged me towards finding an opportunity to do something for nature and wildlife in a professional capacity."

Join us this Friday at 6 pm IST for a discussion with Mr. Praveen Bhargav and our Research Fellow, Vinni Jain, as they discuss the evolution of Wild Life (Protection) Act and possible solutions to make it more impactful.

The Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972, was a pivotal moment for biodiversity conservation in India. The Act provides legal protection to several species of wild animals and plants, prohibits hunting, supports the establishment of protected areas.
And the Act also regulates the trade of wildlife parts and products. Since the Act was passed 50 years ago, it has had a remarkable impact on Indian wildlife and conservation. It has also been heavily criticised, with the laws having undergone several amendments over time.

1. What comes to your mind when you hear 'Chambal'?

Daku/dacoits - right?

Up to the early 2000s, organized crime controlled Chambal across MP, Rajasthan, Haryana, and UP.

Today we talk not of extinct dacoits, but endangered wildlife.

2. Apart from the बीहड़ badlands, it has the National Chambal Sanctuary.

A 5,400 km2 protected area for the critically endangered gharial, the red-crowned roof turtle and the Ganges river dolphin.

3. The sanctuary runs across UP, MP and Rajasthan.

In 1978, Madhya Pradesh declared it an eco-reserve. Today, it is co-administered by the three states.

I wasn't in touch with him. I hadn't spoken to him in decades. But his elder brother & me were good friends for long though even we didn't meet often. His memory goes back to our school & college days - 1973 to 1980 or so. He was then around 13 yrs old. He was unique even then.
With some friends he had what was called Harry's house. For us though a couple of years older it was like a Enid Blyton fantasy but at whole new level. Reason ? They had snakes which they caught & kept in glass cages. To avoid accidental snake bite in the night their bed was hung
over 2 wooden beams just below the roof & that's where they slept. He & his friends were #wildlife enthusiasts & for us in those days it was both bizarre & exciting & for the parents exasperating. I still remember one day during engineering exams we were about to enter the room
