Wildlife Great and Small of India’s Coromandel
Wildlife everywhere – big, small, popular or shunned – plays a vital ecological role in nature, and is crucial to our own existence.
"Yet worldwide, thousands of species are losing habitats essential to their survival, taken from the wild for sale to the global pet industry, unnecessarily killed out of fear or ignorance, slaughtered for body parts used in dubious medical practices.
Every year, species after species is being driven to extinction, which raises the big question: how to halt this situation?
The answer surely lies in making people aware of the value and the wonders of the wild world around them. They are then more likely to want to protect and conserve it for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations".
