Sapling plantation

Sapling plantations and checking on condition of saplings planted in the previous month were conducted throughout the month of August.

1,200 saplings were planted by the Gram Panchayat of Moharli, while the saplings in most of the other villages had been planted in the previous month. Both Mudholi and Khutwanda had asked for more saplings from us for plantation and we provided 1,500 to Mudholi and 500 to Khutwanda.

Checking on the saplings that were planted in July and early August, we found those in Mudholi, Kondegaon, Katwal and Bhamdeli doing very well, as most of these had been planted in fenced off areas, were given tree-guards when planted by roads, or were planted by villagers in house compounds.

Education Van

There were seven film shows in August.

Students at all schools watched the Tiger Rescue from the Well in Kathlabodi most animatedly. They also enjoyed the Islands and Seas episode of the Land of the Tiger Documentary series, especially when there were colorful reef fish being shown, they enjoyed this much more than the Mountains and Rainforests episodes.


On 19/8/16, Bandu gave a lecture to the children of the Mudholi Zilla Parishad School on the denizens of the forests, how they interact with one another, and how they all have a place and a role in the ecosystem.
