VILLAGE WILDLIFE GUARDIANS

TCF and TOFTigers with support from Steppes Travel and
The Tribes Foundation have appointed six select individuals from three ranges in Kanha Tiger Reserve as Village Wildlife guardians (VWG). After a week-long training programme teaching them about the importance of conserving forests with a special focus on tiger conservation, various legal wildlife and forest-related offences, the different kinds of wildlife traps and other such man-made interferences, these individuals will be a crucial aid to the Forest Department in keeping a watch on anthropogenic actviity in the vicinity of the tiger reserve. Additonally, they are to monitor six different local weekly markets, aid villagers in case of livestock depredation and create awareness about wildlife conservation.

TCF LAUNCHES THE SPIDER WATCH APP
The Corbett Foundation and Earthwatch Institute have collaborated to release, on Independence Day, the all-new Spider Watch App - a mobile app to help identify 50 species of spiders that are found in India. The app is a 'Citizen Science' initiative, available for download on smartphones here. Download the app today and get down to spotting and identifying our eight-legged friends!
PUKAAR - THE COVER STORY FOR PMI'S NEWSLETTER
PUKAAR – TCF’s Sustainable Livelihoods Programme supported by Axis Bank Foundation – is the featured ‘cover story’ in Project Management India’s (PMI) newsletter ‘Manage India’ August 2016 issue! Visit http://www.pmi.org.in/manageindia/…/issue09/manage.india.pdf for more on PMI’s coverage of this as one of TCF’s flagship programmes. Kudos to TCF’s field staff that work tirelessly to make this programme a success!
KERC WITH THE AIRFORCE WIVES WELFARE ASSOCIATION
TCF was invited to be part of a welfare meeting for ladies organized by the Air Force Wives Welfare Association (AFWWA) for ladies at Air Force Station, Naliya in Kutch, the theme of the meet being ‘Conservation of the Environment’. TCF donated 40 saplings of local plant species to the AFWWA. The plantation activity was followed by a slideshow highlighting influential women in the field of conservation - their leadership skills and powerful roles as scientists, educators, NGO leaders, activists as well as homemakers, particularly those living in rural areas. TCF was honoured to be part of this programme.
VETERINARY CARE IN KAZIRANGA

The TCF team chanced upon a bullock in a village in Kaziranga with a severe maggot infestation of its nasal septa, the soft tissue being eaten away at. The infection was due to a wound caused by the nylon rope used to permanently restrain the animal. Such injuries are commonly observed especially among camels in western India, where a nose-peg injury has led to maggot-infested wounds. The primary step in treating this animal was to cut the nylon rope, after which the farmer was made aware of how this sort of negligence adversely affects his livestock. Ignorance and lack of veterinary facilities in rural areas leaves livestock here susceptible to various, painful afflictions and diseases, and TCF’s veterinary team works towards improving this situation.

TCF CORBETT CONDUCTS HEALTH AWARENESS FOR WOMEN

TCF conducted a health awareness camp at a village called Aamdanda Khatta in near Corbett Tiger Reserve, focusing on the prevention and treatment of anaemia, for iron-deficient women residents of the village. TCF also distributed iron syrup cartons to the attending women. 

SNAKE AWARENESS IN BANDHAVGARH

TCF Bandhavgarh organized an awareness programme about snakes for the students of Government Middle School, Mala. TCF reguarly conducts awareness programmes at the rural school and community level about the ecological importance of snakes, prevention and treatment in case of snake-bite and also to dispel common myths about these important reptiles
