Dimapur, Oct. 2 (EMN): While illustrating that wildlife is God’s creation, Intangki National Park (INP) Superintendent T Aochuba urged church leaders to spread the message of conservation in their respective churches by holding a special Sunday service to protect and save God’s beautiful creation.

Speaking at a program marking Wildlife Week held at Manglumukh village council hall on October 1, Aochuba stressed wildlife conservation and urged local church leaders present in the program to spread the message of conservation in their respective churches. Stating that wildlife is also God’s creation, he said it is our responsibility to protect and save God’s beautiful creation.

He believed that all living creatures are not for consumption only but could be kept to beautify the earth and also maintain the delicate ecological balance, said an update from the INP. He therefore suggested that church leaders dedicate a special Sunday by organizing programs and events to educate people on the importance of wildlife and the environment.

He also urged those in the program to work with the department to conserve and protect Intangki National Park, which will benefit local communities in the future through ecotourism activities in the area. He cited the example of Kaziranga National Park, where marginal communities comfortably earn a living through extensive ecotourism in the park.

A short documentary video about the birds and animals of Intangki National Park and the successful conservation of the Amur Falcon in Pangti was screened during the program.
