“Wildlife is the protector of the forest, ” Children who make clay models refer to people”
By Adnan Tazvir
Sundarbans News in the Indian part: Man vs. Wild – This conflict is forever. In ancient times there were conflicts due to the small number of people, but it did not have much effect, but as the civilization progressed, this conflict also increased.
But on the other hand, some people are trying to highlight the coexistence of humans and wildlife and stand by the fauna.
The tiger conservation agency ‘SHER’ is one of them. The organization members explained the importance of this coexistence by visiting different areas adjacent to the forest areas of South Bengal. Not only this, but the locals are also encouraged to do various things to keep the environment beautiful.
This time ‘Sher’ took such a fancy initiative. The children conveyed the friendship of tigers and elephants with humans through soil models in the Hooghly canal. The festival received a great response from nature lovers not only in India but all over the world.
Some children have made an earthen elephant; some children have made a crocodile or a tiger out of one hand. Some children painted a picture of the forest with a paintbrush. Everyone is between the ages of seven and fourteen. Someone younger than him or her. Those little ones have made these clay models with their own hands.
And ‘Sher’ has arranged their work in one place. In some people’s hands, the combination of jungle and locality has come to the fore. More importantly, these models, pictures are made with absolutely eco-friendly materials.
No one even used artificial colors. Pure colors are made using Jaba (Hibiscus Rosa) flower, marigold, tree leaves. With that, the retailer drew a picture of the forest on a white sheet. This was stated by the head of the organization Joydeep Kundu. According to him, in this way, children are learning to be environmentally friendly.
‘Sher’ is associated with multiple social welfare activities throughout the year. Corona, standing next to the ruined people of the Sundarbans area during the Amphan cyclone, handed over many necessities.
It is human beings’ social duty to protect wildlife like tigers and elephants without being afraid of them. This time the children of Hughli are involved in that work.
The Howrah Forest Department team has stood by their initiative to spread the message of environmental protection through the soil model. Professor Shilanjan Bhattacharya and Professor Aniruddha Mukherjee have joined.
