Sports for Conservation, by Mahseer Conservancy

Narsingh-S GOOD


A sporting event under the banner of “Sports for Conservation” is being organized by Society for Mahseer Conservancy from the 22nd to 26th January, 2010 in the lovely Baluli village, on the banks of the lifeline of Corbett Tiger Reserve (CTR)–the river Ramganga. Sport is a very effective tool in the cause of wildlife conservation, particularly for the youth since it promises thrilling action while sermons and speeches take a backseat!

The first day of the event is dedicated to the girls, with games like kho-kho, kabbadi and rope pulling testing their mettle. A cricket tournament is planned for boys in the next three days. The last day has been earmarked for the prize distribution ceremony where the winning teams for each game will be awarded.

The sporting event will also boast a photography exhibition on the Indian vultures; the Ramganga river and its biodiversity; and the ill-effects of unsustainable tourism in the CTR area.

Narsingh-S1 goodYou are warmly urged support this event in person; either as a gung-ho participant or as a vociferous audience to encourage the various teams.

Please find above the fact sheet enumerating details for participation, logistic arrangements and available mechanisms for supporting this innovative initiative.

We look forward to seeing you at Baluli!

Feel free to call or write for clarifications.
