Earlier, the pontiff highlighted the plight of vulnerable immigrants and robustly defended a bishop accused of covering up sexual abuse at the end of a visit to Chile overshadowed by controversy. In the northern border region of Iquique -- which he said was "the land of dreams" for so many -- the pope hit out at human traffickers and others who seek to take advantage of helpless immigrants. "Let us be attentive to those who profit from the irregular status of many immigrants who don't know the language or who don't have their papers 'in order,'" Francis told a colorful congregation of some 50,000 people at an open-air mass on Iquique's sprawling Lobito beach.

Restoring a wildlife corridor 16.1.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A new study by researchers at the Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE) has proposed a new approach of working with local communities and other institutions, towards restoration of the Edeyarhalli-Doddasampige Wildlife Corridor (ED corridor) near Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple (BRT) Tiger Reserve. Very often, wildlife corridors are devoid of monitoring, and are subject to fragmentation and degradation, as local communities depend on them to obtain forest resources like timber, firewood, food and medicine.

Soligas, an indigenous tribal community, and a few other non-tribal communities are the major inhabitants of this ...
