Media workshop for journalists from the district of Umaria
Bandhavgarh National Park, Jan 4, 2004: A workshop was organized at the Tiger Trust office at Tala, head quarter of Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, on January 4, 2004. Journalists from the district of Umaria associated with both electronic and print media participated in it. The themes of the workshop were concentrated basically on expectation in the existing Wildlife Protection Acts of India, socio-economic reasons, if any, behind the involvement of the locals in wildlife offences and role of the media in the campaigns for conservation of the Tiger.

It was observed that the Wildlife Protection Acts, 1972, despite going through its 3rd amendment in 2003, needed more teeth. First, fine and punishments for offences related to Schedule-1 animal which includes the tiger, should be hiked. Usually, cases related to Schedule-1 animals used to take anything up to 5 to 10 years in the court of law to come to a stage of probable conviction, if there is any. It should also be noted that the rate of conviction related to the offences meted out to the tiger in India is miserably low.

It was deliberated that most of the illegal trafficking related to the tiger took place in centres like Delhi and Mumbai. From there, it make way to Nepal, and finally to China. It is noteworthy that most of the tiger skins and bones had been recovered from the India-Nepal boarder.

During the workshop, it was lamented that most of the accused involved in the illegal trafficking of the Tiger roamed around freely on bail. Therefore, acting on them, which would be curbing the crime at the hub itself, would be a priority.

Mrs. Anjana Gosain, honorary secretary, Tiger Trust who had been the resource person in the workshop revealed form a research that each wildlife-related crime used to involve four to five persons. Their modus operandi had been observed to be methods related to electrocution, ditch digging and laying of loop or traps. Killing by shooting had been very rare.

It was also proposed that the government should empower the forest guards and rangers to protect the wildlife. Instances were cited in the law where it had been enacted that no forest officials below Forest Range Officers had got the power to possess arms. It had also been approved that a Range Officer could not shoot unless he confronted at least 12 people and unless they start firing at first.

'Proactive role of the media in the efforts of conservation of the Tiger' was another major topic of the workshop. Members of the media themselves categorized their possible roles in that regard. Mr. Santosh Gupta, advocate and senior correspondent for Press Trust of India, United New of India and The Hitavada put forward the proposition that journalists should go around the village periodically and get feedback from the villagers regarding the impact and effectiveness of the campaigns carried out by the Tiger Trust. He also proposed that it would be published and broadcast. The same was accepted by all other journalists present in the workshop unanimously.

Deep Narayan Soni (Dainik Bhaskar), Rajnish Singh (Sahara Samay Channel), Man Singh (Daily Samay), Chandra Prakash Dubey (Swatantra Mat), Rajendra Nigam (Nav Bharat), Narendra Tripathy (Aaj Tak and ETV), Hari Kishan Bhivania (Siti Cable), Kaushal (Dainik Khabar), Santosh Gupta (PTI and UNI), Narendra Deo Bagadia (Nai Dunia) and Ratan Khandelwal (President, Press Club of Umaria) were among the journalists participating the workshop.
