The Governor of the state, Najma Heptulla has expressed concern over the wanton felling of trees, especially in the hills which have now become barren in large areas.

A release said felling of trees has led to far reaching consequences having adverse impact on the environment particularly on the flora and fauna.

As we are all aware, Manipur is endowed with a rich biodiversity, truly a treasure trove of a variety of flora and fauna, it said, adding over the ages, the state has remained covered with thick forest maintaining a fine balance of ecosystem.

The release pointed out that environment has become increasingly hostile to the birds and animals. They are gradually vanishing from the region and flocks of birds once a common sight, has become a rarity now, it added.

We have already done enough harm to the birds and animals by playing unscrupulously with nature, and the situation has been made worse by our senseless killing of birds and animals, it maintained.

At this rate of predation, the release continued the days may not be far away when our rare birds go extinct, and only a few of the common birds and animals remain. It appealed that we should all stop killing birds and animals and join the campaign for protecting them wholeheartedly.
