What is CI?
CI is India's first website focused exclusively on conservation action
Launched in Jan 2012
Over 550,000 unique users, 10,000+ regd. users, audience exclusively Indian
Interested and concerned citizens don't know they can get involved in conservation
Enable conservation action
Enhance stakeholders in conservation

They are in the scientific domain or inside people's brains!
Current conservation efforts are primarily inward focused
Costly "reinventing the wheel"
Leaves out stakeholder groups-
Govt. / Forest dept.
Nature lovers, tourists, photographers, birdwatchers
Seamless networking between conservationists
Search & reapply instead of reinventing the wheel
Branding- a powerful identity to lead a cause!
Conservation case studies & best practices, research & role of science, institutional & legal frameworks, wildlife law & policy, experts, current issues, active NGO directory
Identify & report violations, how to be a responsible wildlife tourist, be a watchdog, create a campaign, make a film, file a petition, go to court, download & file an RTI, form a conservation group

More "best practices" from more practitioners
Mass collaboration - shared problem solving
