(i) The communities have conserved and protected forests and
wildlife in India because these communities have a complex relationship with
the environment. The different tribes and people worship the different trees
like the Mundas
and the Santhal of Chhota Nagpur region worship Mahua and Kadamba trees; the
tribals of Orissa and Bihar worship the tamarind and mango trees. So,e villagers
have banned hunting and some have opposed mining activities in order to
preserve the forest land.
There are many good practices prevailing to conserve forest and wildlife because
non-governmental organizations are creating more awareness towards people. Central
and state governments in India have made many parks to protect forests and
species of wildlife.
