This paper examines how, despite their apparent dissimilarities, the nations of Uganda, India, and Colombia are united by their biodiversity emergencies. In all of these impoverished nations, wildlife is being lost at an alarming rate. It shows how in India, poaching is to blame, while Uganda and Colombia must both combat years of civil unrest to protect their wildlife. It discusses how all three countries must employ both governmental and private agencies in order to save their disappearing wildlife.

From the Paper:

"In addition to its coal reserves, India has great diamond mines. Diamonds are the country's largest export, providing it with $6.6 billion a year (Kripalani 2000). Currently, India's mines are controlled by small-community based companies (Kripalani 2000). Steps have been taken by the federal government to bring in outside organizations with advanced mining equipment, such as De Beers Consolidated Mines (Kripalani 2000). However, those efforts have been greatly opposed by locals, who illegally dig for diamonds and fear losing profits to foreigners (Kazmin 1998). In addition to diamond mining, India is involved in diamond cutting and polishing. Because of this, nine out of ten diamonds sold worldwide pass through India (Kripalani 2000). In smaller quantities than its coal and diamonds, India also contains petroleum, iron ore, many different minerals, and natural gas (India 1999)."
