  • Mission:
  • The mission of Aaranyak is to foster conservation of biodiversity in Northeast India through research, environmental education, capacity building and advocacy for legal and policy reform to usher a new era of ecological security.

  • History:
  • Northeast India, a bio-diversity hotspot in Eastern Himalaya and India-Burma region, is home to a number of endangered and endemic species of wildlife thriving in its forest areas. There is need for augmenting forest protection measures in the region through raising the awareness level among the common people about the necessity for protection of nature and natural resources to keep our part of the planet green. Lack of an adequate data bank on the region’s wonderful trove of fauna and flora, has failed it to occupy a place of prominence in the global environment map.

    A group of young environment enthusiasts deeply motivated to protect the rich bio-diversity of the region, gave shape to a green concept called Aaranyak in Guwahati in 1989 and set the sail on an unrelenting journey that has transcended many a barriers so far.

    Over the years Aaranyak has carved a niche for itself in the field of conservation of bio-diversity not only in the Northeast India where it is based, but all over the country as a leading environment and bio-diversity conservation organisation. It has established itself as a prominent organ of the global network of conservation of nature and its resources. Aaranyak is on a mission to contribute its mite for protection of nature by providing key inputs to biodiversity management based on quality research on ecosystems, environmental education, capacity building, legal and policy research.

    Aaranyak is a closely-knit team of environmental scientists, researchers who have excelled in their respective fields by virtue of team spirit, dedication, commitment, integrity, transparency and accountability. Our team spirit is focused on facilitating enough leg room for individuals to emerge as leaders through skill development. Aaranyak is anchored on a firm research and development base that is supplemented by toiling in the field by our teams working to achieve conservation goals. It has formulated a number of conservation strategies or programmes specific to the Northeast India to address crucial environment issues. The programmes blend science and technology resources with involvement of stakeholders to rediscover the traditional peaceful co-existence of man and wildlife in the region. Eight major programmes form the core of Aaranyak’s conservation strategy.
