Chief Conservator of Forests, Karnataka Forest Department and Assistant Principal, Dr K S Sugara inaugurated the camp and spoke on the occasion.

It had become necessary on a world scale to protect the lives of birds and animals which enrich and entertain the human beings from the bottom level of Gram Panchayat itself. World over birds and animals had shrunk in their numbers and some of them had go out of survival, due to shortage of food, water and trees. Hence this camp had to educate those interested in Bio-diversity of animals and birds to find out ways and means to protect them, he said.
