Team: Mandar Pingle – Conservation Officer
On February 24, Dilip joined Forest Department staff and 4 villagers from Kirangi Sarra in a programme to clean an artificial water hole near Tuyapaar Forest Protection Hut. The water hole is the source of drinking water for the wildlife in this area. It is necessary to clean the water hole at the onset of summer season as the water in the streams and rivulets dries during this time of the year. By cleaning the water hole, we ensure that the water is clean and safe for wildlife.
On this occasion an informative lecture session was organised during which Mandar and Bandu addressed the students about need for wildlife and environmental conservation. Mandar made the students aware about the threats to environment such as various forms of pollution and their sources. The students also took part in nature trail to learn about bird watching during which Mandar and Bandu introduced them to numerous birds like racket tailed drongo, rufous tree-pie, white eyed buzzard etc.
