Entire Village Volunteers to Leave Their Homes So Wildlife Can Flourish
What once used to be a thriving farming community in India, teeming with people and daily activity, is now something closer to a ghost town, at least when it comes to humans that is. All 200 families that used to live in the village of Ramdegi in central India’s Tadoa-Andhari Tiger Reserve made the decision to give their land back to nature. Part of an ongoing effort by the Indian government to reduce conflict with wildlife, the reserve is now free for a plethora of life to flourish.
