The tribal bill provides communities right to protect and manage any "community forest resource" that they have been traditionally conserving and to impose penalties on anyone violating rules.
Sariska was the only reserve with people's participation in the conservation of the tiger. Investigations have revealed that the Bawariya tribes residing within the reserve supported the poachers in Sariska. In Ranthambore, it is well known that the Mogia
tribe has been involved in hunting for generations.
Similar knowledge exists for all our national parks and reserves which need to be collated and put to use while formulating the final bill.
