Indian Forest Service Rangers trained by GIZ & Wildlife Institute of India to protect India’s coastline

India's coastline, which is one of the longest in the world, is under immense pressure as a result of a growing population and the quest for economic growth. Now, 1400 km of coastline are to be protected from ongoing exploitation and destruction, with Rangers from the Indian Forest Service set to be in charge. Some rangers have received special training in the Andaman islands, and are expected to pass on their newly acquired expertise to their colleagues later on. This training was conducted by GIZ’s Indo-German Biodiversity Programme and Wildlife Institute of India.
