Sneha's Journey as a Champion of Conservation

A Paragraph with the Power to Change the World.

Water conservation needs immediate attention and response in the lieu of climate change. River restoration has been a prime objective in the Indian scenario and stories of change need to be used as case studies when planning new conservation policies. We need to engage people as ultimately they will be the ones interacting with the ecosystem on a daily basis. Ecological action plans are required to ensure longevity and enhanced environmental health of the restored sites for which local stewards and scientists are a key. Balancing science and action needs to be a priority when discussing a 'Future for all.'
