Dimapur, June 14 (EMN): Pughoboto Sub Divisional Planning and Development Board (SDPDB) has conducted a one-day ‘biodiversity conservation’ seminar in the ADC Pughoboto’s office on June 13, Pughoboto, on the theme “Progressive environment.”
A DIPR report stated that the programme was conducted with Nuklu Phom, a prominent figure in bio-diversity conservation in Nagaland, as the resource person. The SDPDB chairperson, Y Vikheho Swu was also in attendance.
Vikheho Swu, in his opening address, has attributed occurrences of natural calamities such as heavy rains, landslides etc. to human mismanagement. He was of the opinion that reduction in plantations has made the earth warmer by the day. Swu urged the entire 24 villages under Pughoboto division to maintain one forest reserve in line with the world that is trying hard to revive the environment.
Nuklu Phom has suggested combining scientific mechanism with traditional knowledge for the conservation of atmosphere. Phom mentioned that hunting of birds reduces germination of forest and using salt and other chemicals negatively affect the soil. Phom has urged upon the people to stop lifting boulders from the rivers as a step towards protecting the environment.
Meanwhile, he expressed gratitude to the MLA and administrators for their concern in bio-diversity conservation.
SDO (C) Pughoboto, Tiayanger Jamir, initiated the interactive session. The programme was attended by the village council members, representative from the village, teachers and students in the division.
