The Bishnoi caste from mostly western Rajasthan, are known as the conservationists to whom the preservation of animal and vegetable life is a religion and has been so from the early 15th century. They live by 29 tenets, or rules by which they adhere to. Tailored to conserve bio-diversity but also to ensure a healthy Eco-friendly social life for the community. Out of the 29 tenets, 10 are directed towards personal hygiene and maintaining good basic health, seven for healthy social behavior, and five tenets to worship God. Eight tenets have been prescribed to preserve bio-diversity and encourage good animal husbandry. These include a ban on killing animals and felling green trees, and providing protection to all life forms. Commissioned by GEO magazine I documented the daily lives of this proud community.
