NAMCHI, 07 May: A day-long cleanliness drive was carried by 40 National Social Service volunteers of VC Ganju Lama Government Senior Secondary School, Ravangla and Forest Department personnel at Mainam-Bhaley Dhunga trekking route of Mainam Wildlife Sanctuary.
The cleanliness drive was organised by Wildlife Division (S) which was led by ACF Mainam Wildlife Sanctuary, Kamal Subba, ACF (T) Ravangla, TB Subba and NSS teachers of VCGL School and forest personnel.
The drive was conducted from Mainam Sanctuary forest check post to Mainam Gumpa which covers 12 km of the sanctuary where volunteers collected plastics, paper and other wastes thrown along the route of Bhaley Dhunga.
ACF (T) Ravangla, TB Subba informed that the Maniram Mainam-Bhaley Dhunga route under Mainam Wildlife Sanctuary is an important trekking route and number of tourists visit the area so maintaining cleanliness has become important. This is also important for maintaining ecological balance of the sanctuary area, he added.
