Maha State Biodiversity Board wants your views 5.7.2017 DNA: Popular News
Would you want to help protect a lake, a sacred grove of trees, or a wetland in your area? It could even be a lesser known one, but a biodiversity hotspot nonetheless. The good news is that Maharashtra State Biodiversity Board (MSBB) wants your views and information on not just such bio-rich areas needing protection, but also on threats to them as well as information about local and endangered species needing urgent conservation. This exercise, which environmentalists are calling a wonderful opportunity to help save degrading ecosystems and protect lesser-known biodiversity hotspots, is part of the state biodiversity strategy and action plan (2018-28) to conserve Maharashtra's biodiversity. "National parks cannot be created everywhere, but there are several spots, though small, that could play a major role ecologically.

We found that the forest department underreports cases of poaching, animal death, conflicts, encroachment and forest fire areas. We also found that the forest department does not have ...

Explore the magic of monsoon 19.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Misty mornings, fresh breeze, earth's petrichor fragrance, luscious green landscapes — monsoon brings with it a yearning zeal to celebrate the coolness and mysticism of weather. This time of the year also ushers in a sense of adventure in nature lovers. And with the spirit of a wanderer and the soul of an explorer, many energetic youngsters get out their trekking shoes to embark on a journey and experience nature in all its splendour. To them, Western Ghats — the benevolent mountains with exotic flora and fauna — is a paradise. The hotspot of biodiversity, Western Ghats attracts trekkers all year round. Yet, it is in this moist season that the Ghats is at its alluring best. Trekkers' favourite Prajwal, a final year engineering student, is a fervent trekker and considers ascending Kumara Parvatha near Kukke Subrahmanya to be his best trek till date. However, the end of monsoon would be the best time for this challenging trek and he prefers to hike the not-so-risky terrains of the Ghats ...
