Case Study: Sendenyu Community Biodiversity & Wildlife Conservation Committee, Kohima Nagaland

Alarmed by the rapidly disappearing floral and faunal populations within a span of a generation due to excessive hunting, logging and jhum cultivation, Sendenyu Community Biodiversity & Wildlife Conservation Committee felt the need to take drastic steps to preserve and protect the biological diversity of the Sendenyu region. Conservation efforts and enforcement of rules in the village Protected Area and other community land have today resulted in the return of a diversity of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians that had once disappeared. Today, hunting is totally and indefinitely banned throughout their homeland. The success of the Sendenyu Community Biodiversity Reserve in Nagaland as a model worthy of replication across India is due to the Committe’s vision to preserve and protect the rich biological diversity heritage of your community
