Genesis

In 1990, wild-life activist and environmentalist Vanoo Mitra Acharya was working to protect Similipal forest from timber Mafia and poachers with support of tribal youths headed by.

Learning nature is useful and fascinating subject and that despite everything man has discovered, we know little about some of the miracles that the forest extents to us , to the world and the universe beyond.

SANGRAM developed a vibrant team GREEN BRIGADE” comprising the youth drawn from in and around of Similipal to bring a revolutionary ecological change and to generate a sense of awareness on the depleting flora and fauna of Similipal forest.

These volunteers are committed and are working as development agent and watch dog for the save guard of forest cover. The untiring work of the volunteer has  restricted smuggling of forest produce and immensely  saved the wild life from the poachers . In the span of seventeen  years  we have covered almost   hundred villages doting the  periphery of  Similipal,  various development programmes  has been initiated through  these volunteers  and  existing community based organisation(CBO’s). Appreciating the work of our volunteers working as, ‘GREEN BRIGADE’, the forest department has rendered the service of these youths and has employed them as SIMILIPAL TIGER PROTECTION FORCE (STPF).
