Shri Alemba Yimchunger has been a camp guide in the Kiphire Wildlife Division in Nagaland. He has made a wide-ranging impact by radiating his conservationist nature to not only the people of his village but villages which are adjacent to his as well. His efforts have made sure that the pressure on forest resources are reduced in the Fakim Wildlife Sanctuary. Because of his involvement in the region, his extensive knowledge has been useful to understand the movements of animals in and around the areas or the forests – allowing camera trap studies to take place. Alemba has been a part of the Anti-Poaching Page 3 of 4 squad as well, helping to secure the Fakim sanctuary which has been an integral part of the India- Myanmar border.
