Interaction Program with local communities for the conservation of DPF in all the twelve residential wards of Buffer Zone was started and in last two days we have covered two residential wards of twelve; Dharampur and Mangalpur. Inaugural Interaction program was held at Dharampur and all the residential were showing an complete positive attitude for the protection and development of DPF and Dhanusham. Function was inaugurated by DPF Forest Ranger Mr. Shankar Narayan Jha with his valuable words. Presided by Mr. Devnarayan Mandal, Chairman-MWT, in the presence of MWT team Mr Mavish Herp & Head- Wildlife Research, Mrs. Lintumol P.K- Scientific Officer, Mr. Suvin- Biologist, Mr Santhosh and Mukesh- Social mobilisers, guards of FD and villagers. As we are getting a positive result from all the residential wards , DPF was abandon because of lack of awareness and initiation program. Now as MWT and FD initiated all the programs for the protection of DPF, we can hope a better future for this dying youngest Protected Forest of Nepal.
As we have identified 23 Blue Bull (Nilghai) during our last survey, last week it was amazing that our survey team noticed 28 female and 5 male Nilghais inside the Dhanusha Protected Forest which indicates the return of some isolated Nilghais from nearby areas, which was before inside the DPF and escaped from poaching. This positive return of Nilghais indicates the safety and protection of DPF in the hands of MWT and FD. Also MWT is trying to relocate some more Nilghais from nearby areas as per the information received from villagers. Helping hands can donate in kind for this program to save a life.
After the immense care and love of MWT team, Barn owl was released to its habitat of darkness from MWT office. After 25 days of treatment and care for its injured wing and leg, MWT team successfully released him in the wild. We were giving him practice inside our office for the last two weeks and today evening he was free from all barriers. Thanks to all our helping hands. We expect more helping hands from national and international to our rescue and rehabilitation programs which works at 24 hours x 365 days.
After the restless care and treatment given by the MWT team, Lesser Adjutant Stork left the soul from the earth. Though human being has lot of other way for his lively hood, he still hunts these speechless creature for his fun and game. The only way of checking such ridiculous activity of humans, is the implementation of strict and strong wildlife laws throughout Nepal without any humanity.
Its an happy news for MWT and Speechless creatures that number of rescue calls increases day by day. Yesterday we received three rescue calls of which two were Cat Snake and one Rat Snake. One of the Cat Snake as mildly injured and is under treatment in MWT office.
