On the occasion of International Day of Forests on March 21, 2021, Indira Gandhi Zoological Park organized a plantation program at IGZP, Visakhapatnam. About 40 students of different age groups from Oakridge International School participated in this event.
Gracing the occasion, Dr. Nandani Salaria, IFS, Curator, IGZP, she planted a sapling at the Elephant enclosure. As we cutting down the trees day by day for our desires, soon it leads to deforestation, it is important for all of us to understand our responsibility towards the environment and our future generations. If we cut down the trees to our needs, it should be compensated with the same number of trees somewhere else, but not just for namesake, she added.
Stating further, Nandani Salaria said these things will not affect on immediate, but maybe after 10 years, we will feel the difference. We can feel the climate change, global warming is happening now. To exterminate this climate change or global warming everyone should make themselves ready to plant at least one plant and take good care of it, she added.
It is also very important to make our younger generations sensitive towards the environment and Forest and wildlife conservation. Assistant Curator – 1, Forest Officers, IGZP staff and Amit Jain , Oakridge School director, Shaila Bhamidipati, Principal participated in this program.
