Kenneth Anderson Nature Society has been formed by the readers of the books of the late Kenneth Anderson-hunter, author and Naturalist. Inspired by his writings, a yahoo group called *kennethanderson@ yahoogroups. com* was formed. The members of this yahoo group based at Bangalore have formed KANS to take up conservation of nature in view of the alarming decline being experienced all around. It is an independent, non-commercial, non-profit making, non religious and non-political autonomous body.

The Aims and Objectives are

1. To promote awareness and appreciation of Nature in all its forms and manifestations.
2. To undertake and to aid the conservation of Nature.
3. To actively encourage and undertake scientific study and documentation of nature and
its life forms.
4. To carry out scientific study and promote conservation of Nature in general and particularly in areas mentioned by Kenneth Anderson in his books

Membership is open to all nature lovers.
