Conservation Education

Titli Trust supports conservation education and outreach programs in Western and Eastern Himalayas. Some of the active programs are:

Supporting the Uttarakhand Forest Department to conduct birdwatching camps
Titli Trust has conducted birdwatching camps for training people from the local community and forest staff at Binsar, Chunakhan, Sari, Nandhaur, Marchula and Munsiari in 2012 and 2013. More camps will follow in 2014. These camps are focussed on providing local communities the tools for livelihoods through bird tourism, as well as creating an awareness amongst them and forest staff about the importance of avifauna.
