The North East

Where we work

The region is characterised by unique climatic and topographic conditions and is home to India’s largest number of threatened endemic flora and fauna. Even though hunting is completely banned within the Community Conserved Areas (CCAs), and some species are protected even outside the CCAs, the Chinese Pangolin, Blyth’s Tragopan, Great Indian Hornbill and Western Hoolock Gibbon remain critically endangered.

What we do

We work with diverse ethnic groups across 9 districts in Nagaland. We support village and inter-village initiatives to conserve ecologically critical and bio-diverse areas, by providing context-specific information and aiding collective decision-making that engenders convergence of traditional wisdom with science to design effective conservation strategies. Our team has also initiated surveys on Water Commons for protection and better management of the catchment areas.
