1. Setting up Nursing and undertaking Bio-Diverse Afforestation in the Jungles adopted.
2. Providing Hi-Tech Drones to help the Forest Department in Anti Poaching and Tiger Monitoring Efforts
The Nurseries will raise Bio-Diverse Variety of plants which will help in balancing the Bio-Diversity of the Adopted Jungle to make it suitable for Tiger Prey. Many Afforestation works have been taken up earlier without paying any attention to the local Biodiversity resulting in hundreds of acres of uniform jungle which are not Bio-diverse and do not support majority of animals. The aim is to bring about a balance in these jungle and also re-create newer jungles which are suitable for Tiger Prey-hence helping increase the Tiger Habitat.
While increasing the Tiger Habitat is very important, it is also critical to ensure that existing Tiger Population and its keepers are well protected. Vata Foundation hopes to help in these areas by donating Hi-Tech Drones with Night Vision Capabilities to help in Anti-Poaching and Tiger Territory Monitoring purposes. Many a times the Forest Guards are caught in sticky situation wherein they are expected to go close to a wild Tiger for monitoring jobs. They risk their lives every time they do this. The drones provided by Vata Foundation will help them monitor from a safe distance while simultaneously creating video recording of the event. This video recording is telecast live to the base station there by creating a very strong monitoring tool for the Department.
