WPSI, WSO and Aaranyak Recommendations on the Wild Life (Protection) Amendment Bill 2013 

 
18.09.2013



"The Wild Life (Protection) Amendment Bill, 2013 has been introduced in the Rajya Sabha to amend the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972. The Bill proposes increased penalties for offences, a new regulatory framework for invasive and CITES listed species, and other changes to the Act. There are, however, a few concerns with the Bill's provisions, which WPSI, Wildlife Society of Orissa, and Aaranyak have jointly raised to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Science and Technology, Environment and Forests. A copy of our letter can be found at the link below."
