Dr. M.K. Ranjitsinh

Conservationist, Wildlife Expert

    Attend an engrossing interactive talk on the experiences of one of India’s leasing wildlife conservationists, Dr. MK Ranjitsnh.  Dr. Ranjitsinh was a principal author of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972. A die-hard conservationist and member of the erstwhile royal family of Wankaner, Saurashtra, Gujarat, he has been a Madhya Pradesh cadre Indian Administrative Service officer virtually all his life. After having served as the Collector of Mandla, the headquarter town of the Kanha Tiger Reserve, he went on to dominate that state’s forest policies for over two decades. Some say he has probably been responsible for the declaration of more wildlife sanctuaries in India than any other human being alive.
