Aaranyak’s primary aim is to help conserve the rich biodiversity of northeast India. It works to achieve this by creating awareness among the locals about the need to maintain the ecological balances of their region, and by inculcating a love for nature among school children. Aaranyak has worked in collaboration with several international organizations: the US Fish and Wildlife Services included. It operates in the entire northeast – a region of eight states – some of which are over run by insurgents. Despite major impediments such as security risks, limited infrastructure, etc., Aaranyak officials continue to work relentlessly and fearlessly to achieve their aims.
For Earth Day, they will cover eight states of northeast India.
