THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Conservation of nature is essential not only for the present time, but also for the future, said Chief Minister Oommen Chandy while inaugurating the International Biodiversity Day celebrations organised by Kerala State Biodiversity Board here on Thursday.

“Efforts for conservation should be carried in a future-oriented way. If we do not take urgent and serious steps to conserve the natural resources it would adversely affect our next generations,” said the Chief Minister. He added that the

Biodiversity Board, which is in charge of implementation of the Kasthurirangan report in the state, is going ahead with the task in a laudable manner.

Minister for Forests Thirunachoor Radhakrishnan, who presided over the function, said that nature conservation doesn’t just mean protection of animals and birds. “The entire natural resources should come under the conservation process.  As part of the World Environment Day, around 10 lakh tree saplings will be planted in one hour across the state’’, he added.

The prizes for the winners in the competitions conducted by the Biodiversity Board  were distributed by the Chief Minister in the function.

Biodiversity Board Chairman Dr Oommen V Oommen, member secretary Dr K P Laladas and Dr K Mohanakurp were present.
