About this book

The purpose of this book is to illustrate biodiversity hotspots through interesting, informative and inspirational articles. The chapter on water harvesting and restoration of biodiversity will be inspirational for those who attempt to reclaim natural beauty.

Many people in India's society are yet to accept that wildlife is an important part in the maintenance of ecosystem balance. Knowing more about animals and their survival instincts will make anyone a wildlife lover. The book tries to address human wildlife conflict. The inter-continental migration of birds and the great migration of the Serengeti in East Africa are very exciting subjects.

The reactive struggles happen when ecological degradation affects the subsistence of local populations. A few chapters discuss the history of environmental degradation and mass movements against misleading programs. Broad-minded and educated leaders think about proactive measures. In this era of aggressive market economy, proactive thinking is most essential.
