India: Conservation of wildlife stressed 5 Oct 2010

BERHAMPUR, India — School students of Ganjam district were made aware about the conservation of Olive ridley turtles and black bucks as part of the observation of Wild Life Week.

On Monday morning, members of eco-clubs in schools took out a rally in the city to make citizens aware about the wild animals in Ganjam district and how they can be protected. Debate and painting competitions were also held among the students. The theme of these competitions was wild animals of Ganjam district.

This rally culminated at the diamond jubilee town hall, where the students came face-to-face with the conservation process of endangered animals like black bucks and Olive ridleys through audio visual mediums.

They were shown documentaries in which the whole life span of Olive ridley turtles was described.

The children saw the visuals of nesting process of Olive ridley turtles on Rushikulya rookery coast and also the hatching of their eggs.

They also saw similar documentary on the black bucks in Ganjam district.

These children were addressed by the Revenue Divisional Commissioner (RDC), southern division, Chandrasekhar Kumar; Regional Chief Conservator of Forests (RCCF) J.P.Singh, Berhampur Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) A.K.Jena, local CI of schools Hrudanada Parida. They tried to make the students understand the problem caused due to sharp decline in the wild animal populace.

Mr. Singh elucidated the traditional beliefs of India which has played a major role in the conservation of wild animals like black bucks. In Ganjam also people do not harm black bucks and turtles as they believe these animals are representatives of Lord Vishnu.
