As in 2021

Shivani Azad, March 28, 2021: The Times of India

Mahinder Giri, a range officer who has been deployed at Motichur range of Rajaji Tiger Reserve (RTR) for the past few years, has become the only ranger from Asia to win the prestigious International Ranger Award. The award has been announced for 10 professionals across the globe by International Union for Conservation of Nature and World Commission on Protected Areas “based on their contribution towards conservation”.

Giri’s seniors said he won the award for his efforts in curbing humanwildlife conflict in and around Rajaji and his role in the ongoing tiger translocation from Corbett Tiger Reserve to RTR.

All the winners will receive a uniform patch and their employing organisations will receive US $10,000 (Rs 7,26,150) as prize money.

In 1996, Giri’s father, Rameshwar Dayal Giri, a forest guard at Motichur range, was trampled to death by an elephant while on duty. The next year, Giri, a high school pass out, got the job on compensatory grounds. Giri said he is overjoyed to receive international recognition.
