"While fighting various cases in courts, we spend a lot of time in researching. The Centre at NALSAR can emerge as a resource group where gap studies for such cases can be conducted by students," told Gandhi, urging the university to conduct a critical study on China's impact on India's animals.
Expressing concerns over extinction of various animals, she told, "Around 1,800 tigers in the country are on life-support. Apart from this, we have only 20,000 camels in the country with rare species such as swimming camels being only 3,000."
She also added how our borders around the Kutch area are not protected as the Border Security Forces lacks enough camels to patrol.
The NALSAR University also released a press release as per which the centre will develop curriculum on animal welfare laws, including developing topics for research. "Workshops will also be organised on animal laws and animal welfare issues with judicial magistrates, animal welfare advocates, law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders in the government," reads the release.
