Chitvan is sensitive and mindful of local communities which are neighboring the protected areas of Kanha. We bought farming land, and have over last few years converted it into a mini forest, which today is home to over 100 species of birds, and butterflies. Our motto has been Conservation through Tourism, i.e. make tourism an alternate economy for the local community which has been dependent on the forests for their daily livelihood.
Nature conservation as we dream would have to start with these local communities and nowhere else. Even with the absence of strong tribal development mandate we have kept strengthening our involvement with the local communities. Since we started in 2007, local communities and their development have motivated us to keep advancing in our core business.

1. Education of Children, and elders on benefits of Conservation
2. Water conservation
3. Global warming
