Satara Tukum is a community which has made a lot of progress regarding the protection and regeneration of the surrounding forest. The villagers came together after being approached by the Joint Forest Management scheme (JFM) and started protecting their forests through several measures like patrolling and prohibiting free grazing. 285 hectares were allotted to the village community for protection and a samiti was formed. This scheme was very effective as the wildlife lie tigers and panthers have reappeared and vegetation in this area has successfully regenerated. The FPC of the village managed the funds that were available for the village but once the JFM scheme ended in 2000, the funding became scarce. This has caused insecurity within the villagers due to lack of funding and information.
