    NGO calls for tourist boycott of Kaziranga based on BBC film, Assam unperturbed
    Survival International, a global NGO for tribal people’s rights, has written to 131 tour operators in 10 countries urging them to boycott Kaziranga after a BBC documentary made it look like park authorities were following a “shoot at sight” order to protect rhinos, endangering innocent people too.

    Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation officials feed flood rescued Rhino calves at a wildlife care facility in Kaziranga in Assam. Rhino are a protected species as their horns carry an exorbitant price in the international market. This makes Kaziranga a target for poachers. Between 2005 and 2015, 127 rhinos were killed by poachers.(PTI)

      She pointed out the boycott call won’t have much impact as most visitors to Kaziranga are domestic tourists, who are unlikely to be “swayed” by the BBC documentary or the appeal by Survival International.

      If we are able to do our job and increase the number of rhinos by tackling poachers, tourists would definitely come to Kaziranga,” said Brahma while blaming BBC for coming to Kaziranga for filming with a “negative intention”.

      The latest BBC documentary comes after another one on the park in late 2016. Survival International had found faults in the earlier one for not highlighting that guards in Kaziranga are “motivated to kill people on sight”.
      The national park, which is home to over 2400 rhinos, attracts many foreign tourists each year. Last year Britain’s Prince William and Princess Kate had also paid a highly-publicised visit.

      Contrary to speculations in local media that Survival International’s appeal would impact the number of tourists, resorts near the park feel the boycott call won’t affect business much.

      It’s unlikely to impact business considerably. Foreigners comprise only around 30% of our total clients and they too are likely to take their own decisions rather than agreeing to an appeal by an NGO or tour operators,” said Prashanta Sarma, general manager of Iora-The Retreat.

      Wildlife experts and nature lovers in Assam have also questioned the motive behind the BBC documentary. Some even termed it a pre-planned propaganda carried out with mala-fide intention.

      “Gun battles between protection force and well-armed poachers occur often and sometimes they result in casualties. Poachers are gunned down even in rhino parks of Africa. Why did Survival International select just Kaziranga for this propaganda?” questioned Bibhab Talukar of Guwahati-based Aaranyak.

      The exorbitant price for rhino horns in the international market makes Kaziranga a target for poachers. Between 2005 and 2015, 127 rhinos were killed by poachers. Sixty seven poachers had been killed in anti-poaching activities during the same period.

    • So now Butthurt BBC has awakened its lackey NGO, Survival International to appeal to 131 tour operators in 10 countries to boycott Kaziranga national park,so India can be punished for banning BBC for 5 years and its journalist Justin Rowlatt, BBC’s south Asia correspondent visa was not renewed:badass:

    • Survival International a London-based charity. It argues that the rights of tribal people around the park are being sacrificed in the name of wildlife protection, Devil quoting the scriptures:cheesy:,British eliminated many tribals societies and branded some tribes as born criminals, like Thugee 'Which they made the word thug' because thugee tribes were fierce warriors and would use guerilla attacks,which Colonial Britain had no idea,how to tackle them. Now the same Britain is fighting for rights of Tribal people in India?:sarcastic:Sau choohe,khaakar, billi hajj ko chali.

    • Not going to work, BBC and Britain can take the middle finger up their backsides,Britain needs India more than India needs Britain,These colonial blackmails,threats are not going to work anymore,don't like our conservation efforts of our wildlife,don't come, our domestic tourists are big enough to offset any foreign tourism.:santa-mooning
