India. No other country presents so many contrasts. Ethnical, religious and
economic.The challenges of today however, are economic growth at any price – rapid population growth – and ecological balance.The list of endangered species at home in India is long.
The Indian government has been attempting to curb the extinction of
species in the world’s third-largest country since 1973. Nature reserves have
been established and reintroduction stations founded.The fact is, around 1.3 billion people in India need food - towns like Mumbai and Calcutta are bursting at the seams. But resources and arable land are limited – and the population is growing rapidly.
