It is a very special day indeed as the world’s second e-base ever located in Pench, India celebrates it’s second anniversary!
Conservation Wildlands, the wonderful organization that hosts the e-base had this announcement to celebrate this makred day.
“We have come such a long way since our first workshop with he students of various schools in Pench. Right from an organic patch, inclusion in the Season Watch Program to expanding our reach to close to 250 students on the other side of the reserve, Karmajhiri. We are glad that we have managed to touch so many more lives.
The e-Base is definitely one of the sure shot ways to ensure an environmentally responsible generation to come. Moreover, we believe that the setting up of the e-Base has also subsequently helped expose the students to several different styles of learning, enhanced their scientific understanding of their surrounding and finally in a its own small way bridged the gap between the rural and urban divide that exists.
it is a space where students, tourists, teachers, forest guards alike come together for one common goal to help preserve the bounty of flora and fauna that is found in India.
We would like to thank everyone who has been part of this wonderful journey. Thank you Urvi Ashok Piramal Foundation, Robert Swan and 2041, Leaps & Bounds, Vigyan Ashram, Pabal, Curiouscity Science Education, Haathi Chaap, TIFR, The Gerry Martin Project TERI – The Energy and Resources Institute, RUR: Are you Reducing, Reusing, Recycling., Reniscience Education, Green the Gap. We hope to have your support in the coming years as our plans for the E-Base expand.
