About the Symbiosis Law School (SLS) Hyderabad
The concept of ‘Symbiosis’ is nurtured by Dr. S. B. Mujumdar (Chancellor Symbiosis International Deemed University) on the principles of Vedic thought ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ which means ‘World as One Family’.
Symbiosis Law School (SLS) Hyderabad was established in 2014 inheriting splendid novelty, dynamism and excellence in the education of Symbiosis International Deemed University, Pune.
Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice (CCCJ), is one of the many centres of Symbiosis Law School, Hyderabad that aims at specializing, tutoring and disseminating information about the different facets of criminology, forensic science, penology and victimology to its students. CCCJ was established in March 2018 with an ambitious and enthusiastic furore to gain more knowledge about the fascinating world of criminology and its sister branches.
About the Webinar
India is home to a huge part of the world’s wildlife with 515 wildlife sanctuaries, more than 120 National Parks, 26 wetlands and 18 Bio-reserves out of which 10 are a part of the World Network of Biosphere Reserves. Sadly, a large number of these flora and fauna are endangered.
The Red List of 2018 released by the Rio+20 Earth Summit, lists out 132 endangered species of plants and animals in India, and the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List released in 2019, added 48 more species to the list.
The main reason for this is the anthropological interference like poaching, hunting, deforestation, environmental pollution, and loss of habitat. Evidently, the Wildlife in India needs more protection. This webinar is an attempt to increase awareness on the above-mentioned issues and the necessity for conservation.
It will also help the participants to understand the liability of the state and private institutions in pollution control for the preservation of wildlife and the effectiveness of the legislations passed in this regard.
