For people in the 21st century, the phrase ‘going green’ could mean different things—saving trees, keeping the environment clean, and more recently reducing carbon dioxide emissions for unsubstantiated reasons that are part of the global warming/climate change/climate disruption movement.
But I decided to go green literally and visit the dense forest regions in southern India over the weekend, and get my own stewardship perspective on that area’s environment.
India is known for some very specific things—Bollywood, food, crowded cities, poverty, and lack of hygiene.
But India has more to it. The country has 515 wildlife sanctuaries and 103 national parks (both of which come under The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources IUCN category II protected areas). My visit was to the Mudumalai national park and wildlife sanctuary.
