Management of National Park


Share post:


A few more National Parks are coming up in the north-eastern region, according to statements made by the Union Minister for Environment, Mr Digvijay Singh, who was recently on a visit to some of the States of the region. This is as it should be since the region abounds in abodes of rare specimens of Wildlife which need protection from extinction and therefore, call for suitable measures for their preservation in as many of their natural habitats as possible. In Kaziranga alone, as many as 91 Rhinos are reported to have been killed in recent years, and such vandalism has to stop. The existing arrangements for keeping watch over poachers and others pouncing on the sanctuary dwellers obviously need to be adequately augmented.

Now that there would be a wide network of such Sanctuaries, big and small, there appears to be a good case for putting all of them under a common regional arrangement which would ensure a better management of these sanctuaries. Since, however, these at present are under control of different State governments, a common cadre of personnel drawn from the concerned States could perhaps be thought of if only such a coordination is arranged for under an integrated autonomous agency. The North Eastern Council could well be interested in taking the needed initiative for such a desideration.
