Workshop on SGNP's biodiversity
The first week of October is observed as the National Wildlife Week.
On the occasion, Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) authorities along with Mumbaikars for SGNP have organised a media workshop on October 5 between 8 am and 1 pm. It will start with a nature trail led by a naturalist and will be followed by an interactive session on the human-leopard conflict.
The assistant conservator of forest along with other researchers working in the area will address the session. Man-animal clashes have increased over the last decade, mainly due to the fast-disappearing forest cover and rising encroachments.
