A big roar for Gir’s eco warriors

A big roar for Gir's eco warriors
At The Sanctuary Wildlife Awards 2015 held yesterday, several environmentalists from different walks of life were acknowledged for their work.
Held at the Press Club of Mumbai last evening, this diarist was glad to spot Rasila Vadher. The young ranger's bravery was applause-worthy during an earlier interview. The forest guard came into popular view when a TV series documented the rescue work of the female forest guards inside Gir's treacherous forests. Vadher and other guards have been a part of over 900 rescue operations, which involved her come face to face with pythons and lions. Roar!
