This report is a part of the Development of Corporate Citizenship (DOCC) projects of S.P.JainInstitute of Management and Research. DOCC works towards sensitization of future managers tosocial causes and establish a channel where future managers can contribute towards the non-profitsector. Each year PGP students, at the end of first year, undertake socially relevant projects for sixweeks. These projects are in association with operating NGOs or some corporates. Such projectshave been extremely valued in implementing new approaches to improve financial management,develop information systems, building brand equity of the organization and developing business plan to achieve overall organizational effectiveness.Applied Environmental Research Foundation (AERF) is a registered Non GovernmentOrganization based in Pune, India and is working in the field of community-based conservation.Founded in 1994, AERF has been trying to address the issue of biodiversity conservation at thegrass roots level. It has developed approaches and models and is working to involve people,especially the local communities, in the cause of conservation. The organization is driven by passion and a commitment to conservation and believes in community based conservation or  participatory conservation.Conservation has become the need of the hour. With development and modernization,deforestation has become rampant. This has led to large scale loss of bio-diversity which in turn,affects every living being. We ourselves are at the receiving end. Hence, we felt the need to work with an organization that addresses these issues and has considerable experience in the field. Thisway, we wish to make our contributions to the field of environmental conservation.

It gave us the first opportunity towork for the conservation of the environment, to understand the psychology of working with anorganization and to apply management principles in the unstructured environment.We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to Prof. Nirja Mattoo andProf. Parimal Merchant for valuable guidance prior to commencement of the project and timelysupport during the tenure of the project.We are extremely grateful to Dr. Archana Godbole, Director AERF and Mr. Jayant Sarnaik, JointDirector AERF for granting us the opportunity to undertake the project and providing valuableinsights and direction in understanding the importance of conservation and various activities.Finally we would like to thank all the staff members of AERF for guiding and supporting usduring the research and without that support this project would never been a success.
