Community workshop by Aranyak

Nameri National Park: Aranyak is a biodiversity conservation society of North-East India. It organized a workshop on Eco-Camp of Nameri National Park (a tourist resort) on tiger conservation and its problem in NNP. The Brahamaputra valley in Assam is an important stronghold of the Royal Bengal Tiger (Panthera Tigris) in India and facing serious anthropogenic threats that may lead to extinction in future. The Nameri National Park is one of the designated tiger reserves in Assam. As per the latest tiger census carried out by Forest Department, approximately 37 tigers were found in the park. This accounts for 10.6% of the total tiger population of Assam.

The organizer invited a variety of selected community members and other stakeholders from around the tiger reserve and the parks. The purpose of this workshop was to involve and make the participants aware of the various conservation problems and issues prevailing in and around the park, followed by identification, prioritization and preparation of strategies to solve those problems. Their interest in the workshop was to give a platform to establish a network among the stakeholders interested or involved in tiger conservation to share ideas and information.
