Craft based livelihoods and entrepreneurship for human-wildlife co-existence in Central India: The PashooPakshee experience Savini Sonavaria PashooPakshee (www.pashoopakshee.com) is a social enterprise that started with a vision to give tourists a meaningful take-away by providing socially responsible and destination specific souvenirs at India's tourist attractions which are made by artisans and locals living near the destination. It works with marginal and tribal communities that live near periphery of protected forests and wildlife reserves, people who interact daily with wildlife due to their way of life or proximity.     The intervention was a response to the fact that there is a lack of quality souvenirs in the Indian tourism space with the proliferation of mass manufactured items and cheap imported products being sold everywhere. It christened itself PashooPakshee because it started with a focus on wildlife & nature tourism. Over the years it has begun to explore and work with other tourist sectors as well.
