Why are the Arabari forests of Bengal known to be a good example of conserved forest?
The Arabari forests of Bengal are a good example of conserved forest. A wise strategy was developed by the forest department which aimed at involving maximum number of locals and villagers for the protection of forests. In return, they were offered employment and also had some share of the final produce. They benefitted from the harvesting operations. These people were allowed to collect firewood and fodder from the forest for a marginal fee. Through the active involvement of the locals, the Arabari forests of Bengal are conserved.
