April 3-4, 2012, an Oxford scientist Dr Shonil Bhagwat accompanied by a TERI scientist Dr. Yogesh Gokhale and Aman Singh of KRAPAVIS visited Orans, the sacred groves in Rajasthan India. They visited half a dozen orans which are being restored under this project. The scientists’ team gathered information in face-to face meetings with local communities, carried out field visits and provided their feed back/ suggestions on-the-spot. Also, they suggested that along with restoration work, KRAPAVIS should take up scientific documentation of sacred groves around Sariska Tiger Reserve, in order to better understanding links in biodiversity conservation and sustaining livelihoods. The team is now in the process of developing a concept paper.
