“This field visit clearly demonstrated that KRAPAVIS’ project increases villagers’ involvement in conservation, a better approach to human-wildlife coexistence than removal & relocation. Also, empowering and supporting communities to assert traditional resource management rights and techniques (water, grazing, Oran*) ----- Pastoralists and their herds (of buffalos, goats, camels) were seen in the immediate surroundings of villages, women were collecting dead wood for cooking fuel; demonstrating that natural resources management is effective---”, reports Ms. AUDIBERT-PESTEL Expert and Founder of the a French NGO, who visited the project, during 12-19 February 2018.

Under the project, biodiversity conservation measures were taken, native and endemic trees were planted during the last rainy season to improve the food supply for the wildlife, especially for tree-dependent species; to improve water catchment in that area; and to sink carbon. The trees nursery is based at the KRAPAVIS Center Native trees for domestic cattle and wild ungulates and cervids are replanted during the rainy season. Thus the project re-introduced the concept of traditional knowledge and coexistence, Oran means human & wildlife living together. Community resources maps were drawn with landmarks. Cattle are kept in surroundings of villages. Communities are all vegetarian, the diet is milk-based.
