MWT and DoF has been arranging community interaction programmes in each and every adjoining villages of Dhanushadham Protected Forest since last 3 months.
DoF and MWT feels that these programmes have been resulting very well for the protection of the forest. Major agendas of the programmes were:
1. Prohibited zone for carrying arms & instruments in DPF,
2. Grazing in barren area instead of core zone of DPF and to find substitute instead of depending on this diminishing forest,
3. Complete restrictions of illegal tree logging inside DPF,
4. Restrictions in community made fire inside DPF,
5. Land encroachment etc.
We are glad to see the positive results of interaction programmes inside DPF.
Illegal tree logging has been completely stopped, grazing has been done outside core zone, depletion in the number of grazing animals, no firing in last 2 and Half month, the greenery inside forest and returning of blue bulls.
The results of our continuous struggle since the appointment of Mr. Shankar Narayan Jha as Assistant Forest Officer at Dhanushadham Range Forest Office can be seen and felt by any of the person. It is an example of successful awareness programmes.
We have decided to continue such interaction programmes in each and every month in entire Buffer Zone of the forest.
