Nature plays a central role in our lives. Without tigers, leopards and crocodiles, without carnivores at the top of the food web, ecosystems like forests would disappear. If there are no smaller but equally attractive butterflies, dragonflies and bees, pollination will collapse and our agricultural system will collapse.
The animal world also plays a central role in our imagination. Like the rhino in Nepal, the lion and tiger are symbols of the pride of the Indian nation. When scientists announced in 2005 that there were no more tigers left in the Sariska Tiger Reserve, the news was widely condemned and prompted park managers to relocate the tigers from other parts of the country.
When the new boy was seen in the booking in 2012, the celebration was just as big. Many of us may never have seen them in our lives, but they are important to us.The Indian subcontinent is rich in biogeography and ecological diversity.
India has some of the most abundant species in the world in central India, the eastern and western parts of the Himalayas, the western and western Ghats, mangroves, coastal and coastal wetlands, and forests in other parts of the country. If you know where to look, even our city is full of wildlife. We treat our game species very badly.
Elephants were killed by high-speed trains, dolphins and Amur falcons were killed by nets, bus birds and flamingos. They have died in large numbers, entangled in the cables connecting more and more solar power plants, intensifying India’s pursuit of a renewable energy superpower. Our pursuit of growth and development is important, even essential.
Ecology is not only because of unfairness, not only because nature is a different part of us, but also from a pragmatic point of view, we need to protect our biodiversity, because when the ecology that supports the ecosystem collapses, the lack of economic growth will collapse.
Many wildlife books, especially Indian books, focus on animals with extraordinary charm: tigers, lions, leopards, rhinos and elephants. These are iconic views, and it is understandable that these books are in great demand. But wildlife is far more than the Big Five. In this respect, “Wild and Deliberate” is a completely different book on wildlife. Of course, she told us stories about these great animals, but she also kindly described the story of the annoying macaque, the wandering tiger and butterfly. And pink starlings. The second important feature of this book is dealing with people.
In India, protecting animals is often criticized for its “anti-human” approach, accusing local communities (usually tribes) of poaching wildlife while allowing them to engage in tourism, mining, roads and other development activities, which has an impact on biodiversity Bigger.
