FROM TIME IMMEMORIAL THE FLORA AND FAUNA HAS BEEN AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE INDIAN FAMILY. SAINTS, SAGES, HOLY MEN AND PRIESTS HAVE BEEN TREATING NATURE AS THEY WOULD TREAT ANY HUMAN BEING.
  • 3. THE SEA BEACHES, MANGROVE FORESTS, CORALS, MARINE LIFE AND OTHER ATTRACTIONS FOR MIGRATORY BIRDS ARE IN CONSTANT DANGER. THE GOVT. IS TRYING TO PROTECT THEM BY IMPLEMENTING VARIOUS REGULATIONS.

  • 5. THE MAIN CAUSES ARE THE EXPANSION AS WELL AS DEVELOPMENT OF NEW PORTS, JETTIES, FISHERIES, INDUSTRIES, TOWNSHIPS, HOLIDAY RESORTS AND YES, ALSO ENCROACHMENTS.
  • 6. THIS HAS RESULTED IN DEGRADATION OF MANGROVE FOREST. A NEWS ITEM OF THE TIMES OF INDIA IS SHOWN HERE.

  • 10. In addition to the above all the creeks and rivers are silting. The satellite images of saline wetlands of India for the years 1991 and 2011 should be analyzed. That would confirm how much wetlands have diminished naturally, officially and/or through encroachments.
  • 11. In view of above this work shop should recommend to the Govt. of India the following proposals :-  All Wetlands should be reserved for the development of mangrove forests and shelters for migratory birds.  All wetlands should be under an authority at national level with the respective state units.  All state governments should be advised to estimate how much of wetlands have been encroached against C R Z norms.
