Animal Instincts (English)

Bangalore or Bengaluru has had a history of its own; and as part of the many historical perspectives, there is also this small, cute animal that has always been part of the city's identity - the slender loris or kaadupaapa. Well, it is also the state animal of Karnataka. This little nocturnal mammal has been a part of the landscape ever since the city was formed.   There is a certain amount of curiosity and amazement that is always attached to this tiny animal. While this animal is very much a part of urban wildlife today, a very little is known of the animal both scientifically and otherwise. This is the very aim of the Citizen Science project called the Urban Slender Loris Project that was started almost 8 months back - to establish the presence or absence of slender lorises in Bangalore in a scientific manner and, to bring in the awareness about its ecological importance in an urban space.   To learn about yet another urban wildlife species, tune in to Animal Instincts episode, as part of the Urban Wildlife month, on Radio Active CR 90.4 MHz on Saturday 25th July 2015 at 12 noon, to listen to the conversation that Padma Ashok is having with her team members, rather the Citizen Scientists of the Urban Slender Loris Project.

Radio Active CR 90.4

<p>Radio Active&rsquo;s vision is to utilise the power and reach of radio to inform, educate, engage, celebrate and empower diverse communities. The station also looks at working with socially committed groups, educational institutions and corporate bodies to promote community learning. Radio Active looks at engaging in community-based projects to strengthen networks for sustainability.</p>

<p>Since its inception in 1991, the JGI Group has been actively involved with the empowerment of different communities through quality education. Radio Active CR 90.4 MHz was started by JGI in June 2007 as a part of the organisation&rsquo;s social outreach programme that could also help its mass communications students get a hands-on to their education.</p>

Content is yet to be updated by the station.

<p>Signature Programmes: Active Bangalore, Shikshanaedu Nana Hakku, Aashitaru, KasaShramikaParisaraRakshaka, Active Dasarahalli Community Participation: Before the starting any programme, a focus group discussion is held for inputs from different stakeholders following which each programme is guided by a programme committee that consists of members from all the stakeholders, who meet once a month with inputs from their respective communities. Innovations in Format: Our innovative formats include radio drama, use of folk art like kamsale, poojakunita, harikatha, veeragase for programming. We are presently exploring radio diary and radio documentary format.</p>

<p>Jain University funded the station. At present, JGI helps us with major part of the funding. However a few in-house projects like life skill training programs for private schools and recycling of waste within the University campus help sustain the funding. In addition, the Community Radio is working for government sponsored like DST&rsquo;s Science for Women&rsquo;s Health and Nutrition.</p>

<p>In the past five years of operations, the most important lesson learnt is the value of partnerships and networks, without which the station could definitely not exist. Through our partnership approach we have been a part of the solid waste management roundtable, the right to education task force and HasiruDala &ndash; a waste-pickers collective.</p> <p>We believe in celebrating as a way of connecting,like our famous tea sessions which has helped strengthen the bond that we have in the community. In terms of impact, we now have over 12 communities working at the station, the mobilisation of waste-picker community through their favourite programme Hasiru Dala and are also in a position to influence policy on waste management.</p>

<p><strong>Core Team:</strong></p> <p>RJ Priyanka, Jaydev, Vimala Bai, Manjula, Lavanya, Shiv Kumar and R J Srikanth</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>CRMC Members:</strong></p> <p class="DefaultLTGliederung1">There is no restriction on the composition and structure of the management committee and as such the committee is able to make decisions on programs, contents, funding, technology, policies and procedures, legal issues, grievance handling, new community engagement, communication strategies etc.</p>
