Mangaluru: Animals in the Charmadi Ghat region are succumbing due to food scarcity as the public are prohibited to feed them. In this background, the authorities from Shri Kshetra Dharmasthala came up with a novel initiative of growing fruit trees in the region.
As part of this initiative, the team from Dharmasthala visited Kannappady Reserve Forest in Charmadi and began sowing fruit plant seeds in 10 to 15 acre of forest land. These seeds when they grow will be a food source to the animals in the region.
Dharmasthala Dharmadhikari Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade launched the initiative. Shraddha Amit, Shri Kshetra Dharmasthala Rural Development Project Executive Officer Dr. H. L. Manjunath, Karnataka Janajagruti Vedike Regional Director Vivek Paid, Charmadi Village Forest Committe President Umesh Gowda, Charamdi Subzone Forest Officer Ravindra Ankalagi and team members of Shaurya Vipattu Ghataka were present.
