Minister Rai said that the change in temperatures could be felt in all regions now. Climate change would have long term consequences. Hence, it was necessary to take measures to check global warming. Environment, forests and natural resources had to be preserved for future generations.

The increase in population and decrease in forest cover are prime reasons for man-animal conflict. One of the solutions for this issue was to increase the forest cover.

It was not just the duty of government, but also of the citizens to protect the forests. In order to create awareness among children about the importance of forests, the government was sending select students of class nine on a tour of forests under the “Chinnara Vana Darshana” programme.  The government was already working to provide better facilities to the foresters. 

Prakash Netalkar, Deputy Conservator of Forests (DCF), Kundapur division, H. Devaraj Pana, President of State unit of Association, R.G. Bhat, DCF (Social Forestry), Chandranna A., DCF (Karnataka Cashew Development Corporation), and others were present.
