Corbett Tiger Reserve (CTR) is going to recruit female Nature Guides for the first time ever.
As per a Corbett Officer, seven girls have been selected by the Corbett administration after holding information recruitment on Wednesday. These chosen girls shall be registered as guides and given duties after a coaching and orientation programme.
“This is the first-time women are getting a chance to become nature guides. Till now, males used to dominate this domain. This concept is being implemented to generate livelihood for local women villagers who live in the periphery of the CTR,” mentioned the director, CTR .
While there are a few other parks in India where the female forest guides are already in place along with their male counterparts, Corbett will be introducing them for the first time.
