Our online chat on 18 th August was free- wheeling and democratic. Positive. Looking for solutions rather than blaming each other . IWC believes that the ideas that are generated in any discussion should be more important than the persons
who generate them. Our online chats are striving towards that.
Read the chat transcript for the month by clicking here.
If you cannot make it to the chat room every month, we do have a 24 hour, 31 day open forum for you to jot down your ideas - The IWC Weblog, unfortunately not seeing its potential yet, as a generator of ideas. Here is the linkhttp://www.indianwildlifeclub.com/blog/
Have you visited
http://www.wildscapes.net recently? Well, the site has got a much needed makeover and, we believe, is more user- friendly. The missing pictures are in place and a couple of new photographers added.
Our usual features are there in the ezine : a write up on the spotted munia, a passionate plea to take our national bird seriously, a short check list to prepare for winter annuals in the garden and a glimpse of trekking in the Yellow
Stone national park!
We have added a new feature on the home page called “ Film Corner” Do check it out. It is on the right hand side towards the bottom of the home page.
“In around 2040, India’s population will start declining, thus reducing pressure on land. If India is able to execute economic reforms, India’s income will rise dramatically in coming years. It is possible to envision extraordinary benefits
from biodiversity, ranging from tourism to research, in the years to come in the context of a prosperous India with a declining population. The puzzle that we face is that of saving enough species over this most-dangerous period of 2005-2040. Putting aside
1-2 percent of India’s area for this purpose appears to be a small price to pay.”
