There have been many examples of forest conservation where people got directly involved to save trees and forests. Some of these are:
1) Chipko movement: In the Uttarakhand Himalayas, Sunderlal Bahuguna and Pandey started a movement to protect trees and stop deforestation by commercial wood contractors who were cutting fully grown trees.
2) Bishnoi community in Rajasthan also present a very good example of conservation of forest and wildlife. Amrita Devi Bishnoi, sacrificed her life along with 363 others to protect the 'khejri' trees in a village near Jodhpur in Rajasthan from a passing army of an emperor who tried to cut the trees.
