Valmik Thapar on Indian Wildlife Crisis

Valmik Thapar in his thought provoking column in the Indian Express writes that our national parks today have become an anarchic monster due to the sheer stupidity of those who create the rules that govern a Park and then those who enforce the same. For instance, the famous Bharatpur Bird sanctuary in Rajasthan is dying because of continued water scarcity.

    Look what happened to the World Heritage Site of Bharatpur National Park. Ridiculous decision-making created a dam on the river that supplied water to this wetland -- the river dried up, so did the best wetland in the world. The state fears opening the dam today because of people agitating and the law and order problems that will follow. So Bharatpur dies, turning from wetland to desert.
It saddens me to read about the plight of Bharatpur. Though I was never really into birdwatching, one of my best friends in school was so passionate about birds that I too started loving them. We had Salim Ali's books as references, but the real reference material was Induchoodan's book in Malayalam -- Birds of Kerala. [Induchoodan (1923-1992), whose real name is KK Neelakantan, was an English professor, whose love for birds and nature was infectious. He was the founder of Kerala Natural History Society (KNHS). My friend was in touch with him.] Around this time Suresh Elamon used to serialise small descriptions of butterflies that can be spotted in Kerala in Mathrubhumi, a Malayalam daily. We used to collect those articles. [I remember how happy I was when I first saw South India's largest butterfly -- the southern birdwing -- near my grandparents' house in Karivellur.] Our Malayalam teacher encouraged these activities by a few of us, and he took us to meet Sunderlal Bahuguna (of the Chipco movement) when he visited Calicut sometime in the mid eighties. We met Bahuguna at Advocate Namasivayam's (then president of KNHS) house. I think I was in the fifth standard then. I remember presenting him my drawing of a butterfly, which he appreciated very much.

Later in my college days, we had a "nature club". Our Zoology professor, Prof. Ramakrishnan Palat [I never did biology, I was/am a math student], was very interested in taking us to wildlife sanctuaries and national parks. For two years we had also worked for a project (Western Ghats Biodiversity Project) of Madhav Gadgil. There were two friends from school days, with whom I'm still in touch, and several others with whom I'm not. One of them became quite famous later: Gopal Menon, the director of documentaries "Hey Ram: Genocide in the Land of Gandhi" and "Resilient Rhythms". In fact he did his first documentary when he was with us. I think it was titled "Yamam" (restraining), and this was about the destruction of the rain forests of Kerala.

Well, I was digressing, the original plan was just to link to Valmik Thapar's article. Thapar says India is facing its worst wildlife crisis after independence. This is his plea to those in power:

    Wake up chief ministers, forest ministers, bureaucrats; wake up Prime Minister -- this is the worst wildlife crisis since Independence. You chair the prestigious National Board of Wildlife that has not been convened for 17 months. Convene an emergency meeting without delay. Reform the finance departments. Reform your own political leaders. Reform the Forest Service (it is time to create an arm of this service only for our National Parks and permit transfers across states from one National Park to another). The present system stinks -- while the crisis boomerangs, Project Tiger and the MoEF are busy organising an international symposium in March to celebrate Project Tiger's 32 years! A disaster awaits to envelop the finest forests of our land.

the problem of tiger poachimg is extremely saddening;
the problem is intensified by the fact that there is NO restriction to enter the forests inhabited by the tigers; also by the fact that there are people living in and around tiger sanctuaries;
why, take the case of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, home to the Indian leapord; How many people actually live inside this park?? and there are absolutely NO loepards left here.....This is happening in Mumbai itself;
The tiger estimate i.e census for actual tiger population shows that there are about 4500 in ALL of India. This is also a highly inflated figure...
if something is NOT done now, its all going to be over in 2 years; the solutions:-
1> relocate all people living inside all national parks; people and tigers CANNOT live together;
i don't know how long the govt. will take to realize this;
2> have tight , gun-wieldimg security inside all national parks, and do NOT allow un-retricted access to them;

it is not only a matter of illegal hunting or even poaching, it is simply that we shouldn´t disturb animals since they´re not disturbing us....in the case of the tiger... it is the high time for us to forget about stupid ambitions and stupid traditions like the one in nepal....where tiger skin is used to make those bloody customes...so it is up to you to give dignity to all the wild life forms which live with us in this almost extinted planet...if you have info on valmik thapar e-mail address..just mail me back

im an environmental management student,i ve been doin research on tiger population in india for the last one year and all i can tell about the whole issue is that mismanagement and corruption is to a large extent responsible for india's inability to save her national animal from extinction.its not that we dont have options,its just we dont wanna use it.the whole issue is just not saddening but really provoking as to government's inability to save a species from being wiped out.i had dreams of returing back to india to serve my country but whn voices of sir Valmik Thapar,sir Ullas Karanth are goin unheard.....i rethink...will someone actually hear mine!

Hi, I'm 17 yrs, Hyderabad...tigers are much more than just passion for me and it is really sad to say that these magnificient animals are being hunted to extinction inspite of varied efforts of people to conserve and protect them. I have roamed about a lot in order to observe and study the animal all over the country and have also tried my best to get to the roots of the problem and what I have come to know is, that the tiger population in India will continue to decline as long as there is corruption in the country... and I'm saying so because in my last trip to the National Park at Bilaspurwith my parents, I had come across a driver who disclosed to me that the politicians and the rangers in the area, took great pleasure in hunting of lions and tigers in the park. Along with that, he also mentioned to us about what they did with each and every part of the animals and the way in which the animal was literally 'slaughtered' while it was still breathing and all that;he didn't really know whether it happened even now, but he was confident that it did.... and its the same story everywhere...
"SANCTUARY" - A haven, a safe place where one goes for protection,.... sadly, its not true anymore, they'd rather be labelled as "SLAUGHTER HOUSES", to be honest... and perhaps, the zoos are not far behind... its the same story everywhere, for the tiger to be protected, we first really need to change the minds of people, and why only tigers, its the same for every other species, its time that these people realise, that we were all the creations of the same hand, and that we are here for a purpose... so that we protect the meek. Its really not enough just to raise funds or speak out only for the voices to die out again, its time for ideas and action, and help the Tiger before its too late...
By the way, I'm a great admirer of Valmik Thapar, and hope that some day I'll meet him and also that my expeditions and research on the issues that are proving as an obstacle for the Project Tiger might be of some use to him... so I hope some one mails me Mr. Valmik Thapar's e-mail id and (if possible) his house or office address. And if Mr. Thapar, you are reading this, or anyone of his associates, I really can't tell you, how keen I am to volunteer for the Project Tiger... I know you might think I might be too young for all this, but you never know... for I'm confident that if I'm heard.... I'm only here to make my point LOUD AND CLEAR!!! Looking forward for a positive response...
Sir, I really think you are the one who can turn thhis dream into a reality... a dream, that one day, man will learn to give way to his ego and learn to co exist with other creatures peacefully... It would be a great honour, if you find me of any service, for sir, I hope that you believe me, I have travelled to places, spoken to people and I suppose, I really have the key to the answers...Please sir, do give me a chance to serve them, I won't let you down, for I know, how to really send the messege across, LOUD AND CLEAR!!

hi
read the comments of many people in the concerned article. it also looks that many people are willing to save the tigers. but the govt or ministery not at intrested or they are not also aware of situation. this has only one result. no tigers in india.Once india used to be called land of tigers and now after years it would be india with no tigers. and if after 20 years if the tigers survive in nature with there full respect i would the most happiest guy. what i wrote is what i fear about the future. Hope and i pray for next few centuries more india is called the land of tigers.

I noticed this entry while surfing the net and thought I'd chime in with some thoughts of my own.

I am now in the UK but grew up in Madhya Pradesh - the state with possibly the largest forest cover in India. I saw tigers in the wild from the time I was six years old. I love the jungles in India and even now when I go back home I make it a point to see them whenever I can.

It is painful to see Government mismanagement destroying India's most precious natural resources. What has always struck me about the forest department staff in the national parks is how poorly equipped they are. I have spoken to forest guards who have been mauled by bears and leopards and they didn't have anything more than a stick to defend themselves.

I hate to admit this but I think the disappearance of the wild tiger from India's jungles is almost a certainty now. India's government machinery is characterised by inefficiency, corruption and nepotism. To expect the government to do anything properly is foolish - if the India's government machinery cannot even arrange for proper drainage systems in the cities and garbage disposal, how can we expect it to save India's wilderness?

I have therefore recently had a very novel and interesting idea. The only way to save the Tiger and to save India's wilderness is to let private owners take over large tracts of land and maintain them - like the private game reserves of South Africa. When a park owner has a vested interest in saving the big cats (because they are a source of tourist revenue), he will invest money in men and equipment to save them. Also, such parks could be given grants by the WWF and other NGOs. At present, the private operators who earn their livelihood from the tigers (the guys who run the hotels outside the parks, the gyspies and so on) have no say in the management of the parks - even though if the Tiger disappeared they will lose their livelihood. The poachers have no stake in the livelihood of these people and they are there just to make money. The government has no real stake in anything because government is all about babus and people saving their own necks and their own fiefdoms. The useless of our “mai baap sarkar” was never more evident.

I have great hope that the Tiger can eventually be saved but it won't be saved by the useless Indian government. If the Tiger is to be saved, it will have to be saved by private initiative. What we therefore need is a change of laws. Currently, it is almost impossible for a private owner/rancher to run a game reserve in India (too much stupid socialism). The laws will have to be changed and conditions will have to be created that will allow big and ambitious rangers from Southern Africa/North America who run game reserves to be interested in India. A game reserve owner who maintains a well run park will attract wealthy tourists from the US and Europe and the enterprise will be economically viable. In addition, the government could impose conditions on the game reserve owners to maintain tiger numbers and not let them fall below certain thresholds. This will allow the Tiger population to stabilise and will also take their destiny out of the hands of the useless, corrupt and incompetent Indian government.

Someone needs to do this at some stage. I have a feeling that private game reserves may pop up in other parts of the world if the Tiger disappears from the wild in India. There is a HUGE market for western tourists who want to see Tigers – most of those tourists currently come to India. When India loses all its wild tigers, there will enormous incentive for game reserves to spring up in other places to cater to this market. I read recently that there were proposals for such reserves in the US and Canada. There was also a proposal at some point for one in Australia (the northern bits of Australia have a climate similar to parts of India). So why are we Indians waiting? We should allow such reserves in India as well.

I have wanted to speak to Valmik Thapar and other conservationists about this idea but have not been able to get their contact details. Does anyone know how to contact them? My e-mail address is aslon05@gmail.com

shame on India, shame on the goverment of India, in the eyes of the world, the goverment and the people will be wholly held responsible for the death of a great and spirutual emblem of the country. It is ironic to see a courty which revers the many gods especially Durga and her convoy the tiger, yet it is the very people of India that are on the verge of destroying this mystical creature from its very existence. In the eyes of the rest fo the world, the lame excuses will fall on deaf ears.
Mr Thapar, we are with you in spirit and support your actions throughout this truamatic time for the tigers of India. We will support in any way we can, as long as the corrupt officals are held accountable for their incompotence.

The Tiger is loosing it’s battle for survival, because the few on the side of the Tiger are ill-equipped to fight the challenges of poaching, absence of technology, and the hurdles posted by inadequate attention.

While there is a lot of media attention in the past few weeks, I do not believe that the media, or awareness is enough to remedy the current critical situation. It is probably too little, too late.

All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) have been used world-wide for wild-life conservation, and forest management for over two decades now. It is a small leap in technology, but the versatility of these little machines, their ability to go at speed on almost any terrain, provides the game wardens the ability to stop poaching, monitor the movement of endangered animals, provide timely rescue and medical facilities, stop deforestation and illegal felling, provide perimeter security, stop environmental crimes and pollution incidents, and explore the innermost area of our jungles.

ATVs are being used by wildlife agencies, and forest services in USA, Australia, Europe and Russia, East Africa, and Canada.

It is my belief that ATVs are the finest asset available to those in the struggle to save the Tiger, and everything else that the Indian wilderness has to offer.
