Narendra Modi’s Development Plan? Will It Hang India’s Wildlife? That is the question upper-most in the minds of conservationists, scientists and analysts, writes Bittu Sahgal, who contemplates, with hope, and trepidation the outlook for India’s beleaguered wildernesses as a new set of leaders take charge of the destiny of over a billion Indians.
Sanctuary Asia, India's leading wildlife, conservation and environment magazine, was started by Editor Bittu Sahgal in 1981 to raise awareness among Indians of their disappearing natural heritage. Sanctuary is at the fulcrum of several wildlife conservation campaigns and serves as a network for wildlife groups, concerned individuals and non-profit organisations. It is also a source of information for press and television reporters. Our focus is the Indian subcontinent and Asia, but our horizon spans the globe.
