On October 27, a tigress was found dead in a nallah off the Waghai road inside Tadoba. The tigress appeared to have died of poison from a snake-bite according to forest officials and the veterinarian at the scene.
On October 23, Bandu led 23 students of ZP Primary School, Kondegaon on a nature trail in the jungle adjoining the village. Bandu, who earlier worked as a guide in Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve, helped the children identify local flora and fauna and explained the need for nature and wildlife conservation to them. A similar trail was organized on October 30 at Mudholi in which 26 students participated.
On October 10, Bandu organized an anti-plastic programme at Adegaon in which school students cleaned up the main village road of plastic litter and waste. They then cleaned up the school premises. The litter/waste was then buried in pits. Similar anti-plastic programmes were organized on October 15 at Katwal and on October 27 at Kutwanda.

As part of our community assistance programmes, we organized a voluntary work project on October 16 at Sitarampeth in which 2 village youths and 2 students joined Bandu in cleaning the area around a well used to draw drinking water. Spillover water had gathered around the well, creating a bog in which mosquitoes and insects were proliferating. The team dug a channel to drain the spillover water and then cleaned up the litter and debris
