State Govt training to combat poaching
The State Forest Department recently organised training for the people living in areas adjacent to the forests of Jaldapara and Gorumara so that they can help actively in combating poaching. Members of various NGOs also took part in the training.
This is of crucial importance as the people living in such areas know the forest like the back of their hand. Investing them with this responsibility will also make them much more aware of how activities like poaching destroy nature and wildlife.
It may be mentioned in this connection both Jaldapara and Gorumara are famous for being home to the Indian rhinoceros, besides many other animals and birds, and of course a variety of trees and plants.
