Ecotourism-linked wildlife monitoring activities by the village Wildlife Club have been greatly enhanced by a dedicated laptop and still cameras. These were awarded by the International Ecotourism Club, Ecoclub, which promotes social & ecological change through and within tourism. Village youth are learning to digitally document field projects, make web pages, and then upload them to the RLI website as well as a wide variety of other Internet options (Facebook, Youtube etc.).

The wildlife monitoring and natural resource management activities carried out by the Wildlife Club and RLI are supported by IUCN.
