Case study of people's participation in conservation of forests. Amrita Devi, a member of the sect who inspired as many as 362 other Bishnois to go to their deaths in protest of the cutting down of Khejri trees in September 1730. Prosopis cineraria, known as Shami, Khejri Tree or Ghaf
History Once the maharajah of Jodhpur, Abhay Singh, requiring wood for the construction of a new palace, sent soldiers to cut trees in the village of Khejarli, which was called Jehnad at that time. Noticing their actions, Devi hugged a tree in an attempt to stop them. She told the soldiers that she considered their actions to be an insult to her faith and that she was prepared to die to save the trees. Some of the 363 Bishnois who were killed protecting the trees were buried in Khejarli, where a simple grave with four pillars was erected. Every year, in September, the Bishnois assemble there to commemorate the sacrifice made by their people to preserve their faith and religiorn.
The government of India has recently instituted the Amrita Devi Bishnoi Wildlife Protection Award 1. 2. This award is given for significant contribution in the field of wildlife protection, which is recognised as having shown exemplary courage or having done exemplary work for the protection of wildlife.
In 1974, the Chipko movement or Chipko Andolan was a forest conservation movement where people embraced the trees to prevent them from being cut. History- Chipko movement, derived from the Hindi word chipko, meaning to stick, where batches of men and women, led by the grassroots environmental acitivist Sunderlal Bahuguna, embraced and stuck to trees to prevent them from being felled. Sunderlal Bahuguna (born 9 January 1927) is a noted Garhwali environmentalist, Chipko movement leader and a follower of Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy of Non-violence and Satyagraha. The idea of chipko movement was of his wife and the action was taken by him.
This resulted in introduction of (JFM) program in India in 1980's. The primary objective of JFM is to ensure sustainable use of forests to meet local needs equitably while ensuring environmental sustainability. Forest management is a branch of forestry concerned with overall administrative, economic, legal, and social aspects, as well as scientific and technical aspects, such as silviculture, protection, and forest regulation. The concept of (JFM), is to work closely with the local communities for protecting and managing forests. In return, the communities get benefit of various forest products. Example -fruits, gum, rubber etc
Similar movements... Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA): Medha Patkar, Baba Amte, Adivasis, farmers, environmentalists and human rights activists.
