In a unique initiative, village children, youngsters and women in tribal villages living around six tiger reserves in central India came out to provide water for wildlife. Under the banner of Satpuda Foundation, they seek to clean and de-silt around 76 existing waterholes, build 38 new check dams and construct seven new waterholes. "We have been regularly doing this since 2005. But with our spread in the Satpuda Landscape with the financial assistance of Born Free Foundation, the activity has taken a shape of community movement now after 11 years," Kishor Rithe, President of Satpuda Foundation, said. "A total of 38 check dams were built during 2015-16 using locally available materials. These dams, mostly built on streams, help retain water and recharge the water table. Some of them provide drinking water to domestic animals and those close to forest provide water to wild animals," he stated further. Volunteers comprising adult villagers, members of SHGs that we had mentored and children from village ...

Price of neglect 23.5.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Karnataka is no stranger to drought with 80% of its geographical area prone to it. As the noose of this 'worst drought in 40 years' tightens its vice-like grip on 137 taluks in 20 districts, the State anxiously waits for the monsoon of 2016 to arrive, which is predicted to be above normal. Meanwhile, there is distress migration from many taluks. A refinery is gradually shutting its operations near Mangaluru as River Nethravathi runs out of water. The Almatti Dam has reached dead storage levels and the generation of power has been significantly affected in the Raichur Thermal Power Station. The oldest hydropower station in India at Shivanasamudram has stopped generation of electricity since the river no longer flows with adequate water. Foreseeing the problems in the water world of the State, the State government has been implementing many pro-water schemes. But while these programmes started off in a big way, somewhere along the line, they fizzled out and are now doing nothing for the cause. Water ...
