About: Aaranyak is a registered society working in the field of biodiversity conservation in North East India since 1989. Its strength lies in applied research in biological and social field and its thrust area of work is the North Eastern India and Eastern Himalayas.

From a small beginning in the year 1989, it has been slowly, but steadily growing as a premier research based organisation in North East India to cater the complex need of biodiversity conservation in the culturally diverse region of India.

Aaranyak is now run by young professionals dedicated and committed to the cause of conservation. Currently about 34 young professionals are working with Aaranyak to contribute further towards research and conservation aspects of biodiversity in the region …

… Since its inception Aaranyak has been working relentlessly for conservation of rich biodiversity of the region. Dedicated and committed conservationists and volunteers of the society have been able to attract global attention through their persistent work and advocacy. It is one of the most active NGO in the region and has influenced the policy making procedure through its presence in the committees like ‘Steering Committee for Formulation of New Assam Forest Policy’, Rhino Task Force and State Wildlife Advisory Board’ of the Government of Assam.

Internationally trained biologists have been exploring biodiversity in the tropical primary forest for inventory of biodiversity of the region. Considerable conservation and research work from Aaranyak has improved the conservation scenario in the region. This has been possible through commitment, dedication, cooperation and collaboration among several departments and NGOs of the region and indeed generosity of the international community. A brief account on the programs of Aaranyak can be found while continuing to explore this site.
