As the life around us is changing rapidly environmental issues like species loss, human-wildlife conflict and climate change are becoming more severe everyday. Environmental Education based on local flora and fauna has become relevant like never before. WRCS is working with 22 ashram schools for tribal students in Melghat Tiger Reserve.
Taking note of this initiative the Melghat Tiger Reserve authorities conducted a nature awareness camp for ashram school teachers. On 3rd and 4th May 2018, 28 Teachers from 17 ashram schools participated in a residential camp at Shahanur Ecotourism complex in MTR.
