‘No budget for conservation of endangered wildlife’

The people in the district have voiced for the conservation of the endangered species of animal and bird as red panda and vulture.

Govinda Singh, who is involved in the conservation of birds, said as the local levels have not allocated budget for the conservation of vulture and red panda, it would be difficult to carry on the conservation campaign.

Barekot and Nalgad rural municipalities of Jajarkot are the homes to huge number of vultures and red pandas.

Similarly, another endangered bird named ‘cheer pheasant’ is also found there.

Singh expressed worry over government’s negligence to the conservation of such wild animals and birds.

Lack of adequate awareness among people has caused the indiscriminate poaching of red panda, vultures and cheer pheasants. “Such species are poisoned to death for not knowing the importance,” he argued.

According to him, massive public awareness is must for protection of such wildlife.
