Though this film is about Anvi, almost the same happened in 2015 in TN. The trigger-happy special task force was given more importance than the wildlife-trained darting team. We failed once and we were not given enough time to capture the tiger alive,” recalls a forest officer who was part of the team that could not do much to protect the ‘suspected man eater’ that allegedly killed three villagers in the Nilgiri biosphere. The movie also kindled the minds of forest officers and biologists to recall their dedicated officers who stood for conservation like the first IFS woman officer in TN, Aruna Basu Sarcar, known for handling timber mafia in the ’90s, and retired principal chief conservator of forests (PCCF) CK Sreedharan, who was against the neutrino project in the tiger reserve. “Conservation and development cannot go hand in hand and the political bosses should ensure that the balance is not lost,” says noted botanist and professor in taxonomy, D Narasimhan.
