This short video (mixing drama with some interviews) explores the impact of free-grazing cattle inside the community-owned forest reserve. Through the video-making process the participants investigated the issues and put forward proposals for protecting the reserve. Their recommendations include establishing an cross-community agreement to cease all grazing inside the forest and the posting of signboards to remind everyone of the ban on free-grazing.
Made by the people of Sakal Aduma village in the Garo Hills of Meghalaya, India.
This video was produced during a participatory video workshop facilitated by staff from the Wildlife Trust of India and reporters from the 'What If We Change' project, in January 2013. It took place as part of a capacity building programme funded by IUCN Netherlands.
