In Madagascar, fishermen plant mangroves for the future 13.5.2018 General News
Hunched over the soil, Malagasy villagers work feverishly -- deft fingers planting stalks of mangrove to replace the swathes destroyed for firewood and building material. In just two decades, Madagascar lost about a fifth of its mangrove forest area, exposing its coastline to the ocean's ravages and shrinking the nursery grounds of crabs and shrimp -- two key exports. With sea levels forecast to rise further due to global warming, coastal villagers are rushing to try and undo the damage, with the help of conservation group WWF. "The ocean keeps rising and rising, and it takes everything with it," lamented 36-year-old crab fisherman Clement Joseph Rabenandrasana, who travelled several kilometres from his home in Beanjavilo to Amboanio on the island's west coast to volunteer in a two-day reforestation drive. Amboanio is a hamlet of about 50 people in the Melaky region, heavily dependent on aquaculture. "The mangrove protects us," said Rabenandrasana, while conceding that: "I used to ...

Vice Prez bats for incentives to states conserving forests 25.4.2018 General News
Raising Uttarakhand's hopes for a "long overdue" green bonus, Vice President Venkaiah Naidu today said the states contributing to forest conservation must be given incentives. "Giving incentives to the states which are making their precious contribution to forest conservation will encourage them to expand the green cover further," said Naidu, addressing the Indian Forest Service probationers during the convocation ceremony at Indira Gandhi National Forestry Academy here. He mooted the idea of extending the incentives even to the local people, besides civic bodies and panchayats for tree plantation and forest conservation. "We have to save the forests for the future generations. If we protect our trees, they will protect us," he said. "Panchayats have a big role to play in conservation of the forest cover and enhancing it. There can be no two opinions on giving them incentives for this," Naidu said. A green bonus in return for its forest conservation endeavours has been a long- pending
