The future of human society is a mysterious conundrum, due to disturbances and interferences in the delicate web of life. The impacts of environmental destruction and climate change will absolutely be appalling and far reaching. Institutions across the world have already been engaged in every possible way to mitigate the impending holocaust. Conservation models are being developed, experimented, reviewed and disseminated for replication. But certain questions do surface here. Is there any uniform strategy? What are the components of the chosen strategy? How will the strategy be implemented? What should be the expected outcome? What are the benchmarks? Who will be the participants in the implementation phase? What are their roles and degree of involvement? How long is the period of implementation? What is the strategy for sustainability? These are few questions to mention. The present paper addresses all these questions by discussing the experiences of a participatory bio-diversity conservation programme endeavoured in a Protected Area (PA) in the southern peninsular India.
