AP falls short in action on biodiversity conservation

The city is abuzz with the ‘in’ word - biodiversity. A host to the Conference of Parties (CoP- 11), everyone in the capital is talking about biodiversity and its conservation. With so much hullabaloo over the need to take care of nature, one would expect the state to be doing its bit to save threatened species. But the situation is completely different.

State animal Black Buck and state bird Indian Roller have joined the list of endangered species. Like red sanders in Chittoor district, teak wood is now on the verge of extinction. The main question now is, even after the CoP-11 conference, can an ordinary citizen see a fully grown teak wood tree in Adilabad forest or spot an Indian Roller without much effort?
