About this book

Language: English

For over a decade and a half, the Protected Area Update (PAU) has religiously presented a consolidated account of India's wildlife and protected area (PA) network. Published six times a year, it carries in a tightly edited format, news and information of what is
happening in, to and around these national parks and sanctuaries that have been at the core of lndia’s wildiife conservation strategy.

Now, for the first time a section of this huge body of information has been re-organised to become The State of Wildlife in North-East India -1996-2011. What is presented here, then, is an historical account of developments in the PA network in the eight states of the region. While the primary unit still remains the individual protected area, the time line has changed from two months of one issue to 15 years that this publication covers.

In following one news item after another about any particular PA we see what happened month after month, year afteryear; what developments recurred at what periodicity; what were the issues that were important and what was done about them – it's an important
glimpse into the contemporary history of a place (many places) marked on the map as a protected area.
