Bellary: In the wake of the gradual decline in the number of vultures, Rs 2 crore has been invested in Ramanagaram for protection of the vultures. Forest Minister BS Anand Singh said the vulture feeding camp was being built at a cost.
He was speaking after inaugurating the 66th Wildlife Sapthaha program organized by the Zonal Forest Department at the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Zoological Park in Kamalapura town near Hosapete district. The feeling of forest protection must be spontaneously created by the public, and nowadays the mood of seeing and cultivating nature has to change.
The more the officials in the department are accused, the more it is challenged by the department officials to establish a friendly relationship with the public with forest protection. Today, forest cover is still being practiced by groups in the Bandipur forest region. He said the idea of forest protection and duty should be shared with everyone.
As the forest minister, the conservation sapta was to be held in Bangalore. “As a forest minister, I participated in the taluk program with the intention of fulfilling its mission,” he said.
Protection of the vultures is the motto of the sabbath this year. 97% of the world is occupied by humans and only 3% are wildlife. Man is tired of the epidemics that currently plague man. He said that it is possible to create a better life when the man is concerned with his health and the environment.
