If you were to study global environmental protection movements today, there’s one common aspect you might find. Each of these movements, regardless of geography, is divided into two broad camps of environmentalists. The first looks at environmental protection from a wildlife perspective, and the second looks at it from a human rights perspective.
But how exactly, and to what extent, do these camps differ? What is each of their approach to conservation? And why is it necessary to find a middle ground? Our hosts, Vaishnavi and Arpitha speak to Raza Kazmi (Wildlife Historian), Alphonsa Jojan (Environmental Law Researcher & Practitioner) and Aparajita Datta (Wildlife Ecologist) to learn more.
