Creating Conservation Value

.

This is in reply to the article “Putting a Price on Tiger Reserves: Creating Conservation Value or Green Grabbing?” by Ajit Menon and Nitin D Rai (EPW, 30 December 2017), which seemed to be argued well, but, at the same time, was based on various misconstructions. 

The authors failed to recognise the basic objective of Project Tiger, which is to safeguard the continuity of natural evolutionary processes in the wild. Such a high degree of protection given to the tiger reserves has resulted in the increased flow of a wide array of ecosystem services, which are actually used by various stakeholders, without appreciating their use values.
