THE recent gruesome killing of elephants at the Corbett National Park in Uttar Pradesh has once again highlighted the fact that protected areas are besieged territories where threats to wildlife are ever-present. The knee-jerk reaction to such slaughter is to advocate increased policing by the Forest Department with harsher punishment for poachers, wildlife traders and those who abet them. Yet such a response fails to address the larger context in which poaching occurs. While poaching often involves a mafia with links to local politicians and government officials, it also depends upon the attitude of villagers living in and around protected areas. Poaching is the main reason why we are losing the tiger. At the current rate, we could lose them all in 20-50 years onservationists say there has been a sharp rise in the poaching of tigers and leopards in India in recent years to feed an explosion of demand from Tibet, where an ancient tradition of wearing animal furs seemed to have been revived, partly perhaps as a result of greater disposable income. India and China signed an agreement in 1995 to help conserve the tiger but experts say it has been of little help. The crisis has prompted India to strengthen existing laws in a country where the conviction rate for killing endangered species is less than 5 percent, with most offenders getting away for lack of evidence.

the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance UPA is planning to form a National Bureau for Wildlife to keep a watch on poaching crimes in the country. Union Minister for Environment & Forest A Raja has already recommended such a proposal to the Central government, which has set up an intra-ministrial committee to study the proposal. The bureau will be modeled on the lines of Narcotics Bureau NB , which deals with contraband and drug traffickers in coordination with other national and international agencies.

Poaching meant illegal hunting and trapping of deer, hares, pigeons etc. Poaching was forbidden by contradictory laws in the 14th Century. Some poachers did it for a profit by supplying food to the Black market. It became illegal to trade game and this resulted in the Black Market. Other people poached not to sell but to provide food for their family. The aristocracy saw poaching as an attack on their own right and as an invasion of their property. The aristocracy owned the game so they thought that it was only them that could hunt it no-one else. Punishments for Poaching Poaching was not dealt with as a harsh offence because there was no intrusion into a house Burglary or a person s clothing Pick Pockets and perhaps it was also that aristocracy poached against each other. The Punishment normally imposed was imprisonment or a fine.
