HYDERABAD: The Telangana Bio-diversity Board will prepare a database of endangered species in the state before November 15. Later, it will initiate measures to protect and revive these species with the help of village-level committees.

Forests minister Jogu Ramanna on Monday released seven books brought out by the Telangana Bio-diversity Board on the Acts, Local Bio-diversity Fund and other topics in Telugu.

Speaking to reporters later, Ramanna said the material hitherto had been in English and was now brought out in Telugu for the convenience of all stakeholders involved in  bio-diversity activities.
