I am a weekend farmer with a property just outside of Bangalore and the same is surround by forests with a healthy number of animal population. We have been facing a drought situation for the last two years and the same forced animals to raid near by farms for fodder and water. We have had a couple of man- animal conflicts and have lost some animals too. One such incident on our range was -http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/bengaluru/lone-male-elephant-dies-vets-suspect-dehydration/articleshow/58174411.cms
This year our prayers were heard and the monsoons seems to be looking good and we have pledged to build a lake to conserve as much rain water as we can this monsoon. We have identified a place in one corner of the property and have started the work with our own funds. It would cost us anywhere where between 3 to 3.5 lacs and we hope to raise some support to help us complete this project.
We have been regularly working to improve the green cover in the forests by sowing seeds and planting saplings regularly. To know more about us you can visit us at https://www.facebook.comhttps://www.facebook.com/camperscreek/
