    Kabbadi is an Indian game Jaylon Smith Limited Jersey , essentially a South Indian game. Kabbadi’s orgin can be traced all the way back to the prehistoric times when recreation was mostly hunting and sparring. Kabaddi is a derivative of the latter. Indian soldiers used Kabbadi, or whatever it was referred as back then, as a means to build stamina, defense skills and speed and have a little fun while doing it. Kabaddi fierce techniques helped develop one’s counter attack skills and sharpen ones reflexes.

    Ancient Indian manuscripts such as the Mahabharata hold record of the epic’s important characters having taken part in games very much similar to the Kabaddi. Arjuna, the hero of herculean standards Emmitt Smith Limited Jersey , was a seasoned Kabbadi player. Even the Gautam Buddha is slated to have played the game solely for recreational purposes. Kabbadi transcended into the status of a modern day game in the year 1918. It was given a structure and a set of rules and regulations and fully transformed into a game recognized on a national platform. In 1923, an All India Tournament for kabaddi came into motion, in Baroda, to keep a tab on the protocol and guidelines surrounding the game and the Kabaddi players.The game, owing to its simple Demarcus Lawrence Limited Jersey , inexpensive and confined nature, became a big hit among the rural population of India.

    The game came to be recognized internationally, following its introduction in the 1938 Indian Olympic Games conducted in Calcutta. In order to further increase the popularity of the game through the breadth and length of the country, the All India Kabaddi Federation (AIKF) came into being in the year of 1950. The AIFK improved the standards of the game by conducting Kabaddi tournaments at a national level, since 1952. But it was not until the inclusion of Kabbadi in the the Indian University Sports Control Board (IUSCB) curriculum Dak Prescott Limited Jersey , as a sports discipline for the students, that it truly achieved a National status. They took the popularization of the game up a notch by forming a sister organization named the Amateur Kabaddi Federation of India (AKFI), in 1973, with the aim of promoting the game in places surrounding India.

    Kabbadi has come a long way from a sport that dominated, exclusively Ezekiel Elliott Limited Jersey , the rural society to a game that is accepted and revered at a national level. India crossed an important milestone in Kabbadi related news, when the country hosted the first ever Kabaddi World Cup and won the cup as a bonus. As civilization began in Mauritius, deforestation started to take place to make way for buildings and roads. During this course, the natural environment that surrounded most parts of Mauritius quickly decreased causing many species of animals to lose their habitats. This caused an imbalance in the ecosystem of Mauritius.

    As such, the Pink Pigeon could be found all over Mauritius long ago. Nowadays Women's Jaylon Smith Jersey , the Pink Pigeon can only be seen in the South Western part of Mauritius. The loss of habitat as well as predatory rats and cats has caused the Pink Pigeon to become one of the rarest pigeons in the world. Early during the 1980锟絪, authorities in Mauritius became aware about the critical condition of Pink Pigeons. They started a captive breeding programme with an aim to restore the original quantity of Pink Pigeons in Mauritius. Today, after decades of hard work, more than 250 of these birds have been released in the wild.

    It is important to point out the fact that when works started in the year 1985, only around 20 Pink Pigeons were present. Nowadays Women's Emmitt Smith Jersey , seeing the quantity multiply almost by ten times, it demonstrates the will to restore the ecosystem of Mauritius back to its original state. However, the captive breeding and release of these birds in Mauritius will continue until their quantity exceeds 500. The families of Pink Pigeons are currently under intensive care and management so as to ensure their survival. Even after the maximum amount of birds is reached, a close look has to be given to their state and condition to allow them reproduce and live freely in the wild.

    Following the loss in habitat, another bird in Mauritius Women's Demarcus Lawrence Jersey , The Echo Parakeet became close to extinction. The Echo Parakeet can only be found in the highland forest of Macchabee Ridge in Mauritius. The breeding programme started in the year 1990 with only 20-25 birds in hand. The Echo Parakeet is the only endemic parrot in Mauritius and is as well the rarest parrot in the world. Nowadays, after intensive breeding and management, around 40 birds may be present in Mauritius and also around the world. The Echo Parakeet can only be found in Mauritius and nowhere around the world. Similar to the Pink Pigeon, the target has been set to breed around 500 Echo Parakeets in Mauritius before the threat of extinction can be ruled out.

    Apart from the breeding of birds in Mauritius, other restoration tasks were started. During the year 1982 Women's Dak Prescott Jersey , the World Wide Fund for Nature provided funds for the protection of plants in Mauritius. The project was also backed by the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew. Following this, many other international organisations have helped Mauritius to develop and enhance the conservation of rare plants and animals. To cope with this development in Mauritius, local co-ordination was necessary. As a matter of fact, in the year 1984 Women's Ezekiel Elliott Jersey , the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation was created as a non profit and independent organisation.

    The MWF has till then worked hard to preserve the nature in Mauritius. A solid example is the restoration of Ile aux Aigrettes.
