Three tigers found dead in Corbett National park..  suspected cause : poisoning.    With human animal conflict reaching unbearable heights and the DNA of the animal weakening due to lack of space and absence of corridors between forests, not to talk of tourists hounding the animal like paparazzi, the future of our national animal looks bleak.   

In this scenario, we are publishing two different articles  -both reports on efforts to save the tiger,  Titled "Save Wild Tigers-efforts Abroad" and " Save Wild Tigers-efforts in India " these efforts however far apart and contextual  need to be repeated and repeated with resonance.   Wildlife in India can be saved only when each one of us feels the need to save it.  


"You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing — that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something."

The above lines were spoken by Richard Feynman, Nobel prize winning Physicist.

Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) has been documenting the natural history of India for the last 130 years.

With its carefully preserved archives and research scientists of international repute, BNHS is the place to go to for a well rounded understanding of India's nature and wildlife. 

Hope more and more of our members will take up the online courses and will know the "difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something."
