The Chakhesang Youth Front (CYF) has launched what it called the biodiversity conservation campaign in Phek district. The event was launched on Friday with Phek’s Deputy Commissioner Murohu Chotso and District Forrest Officer Ronsenglemla Imchen as the guest officials.
This campaign, in the form of poster, carried messages on the ban on hunting of wild animals, ban on use of chemicals, electrical and explosive devices for fishing, ban on burning of jungle/forest, ban on import of pork to Chakhesang jurisdiction and ban on extraction of forest products for commercial purposes.
The CYF warned that violation of the above would invite serious action. Imchen formally flagged off the campaign. She was appreciative of the effort of the CYF in conservation of bio-diversity and hoped that it would touch all sections of the society.She told the gathering that Nagaland is the most important bio-diversity hot spot in the world.
She said the effort of the environment conservation in Nagaland is gaining momentum and further called for the continuous support and cooperation of each and every individual.
Phek DC informed that the gathering that the district administration will strictly enforce its order on banning of jungle/forest burning in the district.
He lauded the effort of the CYF towards bio-diversity conservation and wanted to see that it reaches the grass root level.
CYF’s President Zhopai Nakhro said the campaign will cover all the villages under Chakhesang areas.
He also stated that the organization will continue to propagate the message of biodiversity conservation through interaction with village functionaries and the concerned agencies.
