WILDLIFE WEEK CELEBRATIONS (OCT. 2-8, 2012)



 













Dear visitor,

Every year, between October 2 nd and 8 th , Wildlife Week is celebrated with pomp and splendour all over India. The celebrations are aimed at raising awareness among the general public about the significance of wildlife and wild habitats, and the need to conserve these precious treasures for future generations. Indeed, the celebrations have played a major role in inculcating in adults and children alike, a culture of tolerance, understanding, and compassion for the wild denizens, two-legged, four-legged and legless alike that share the planet with us!

Periyar Tiger Reserve, Thekkady and the Kerala Forests and Wildlife Department, along with the elected representatives and residents of Kumily town have actively celebrated Wildlife Week ever since it was first conceived. For decades, they have been at the forefront in taking the message of conservation and protection of nature, the environment and wildlife to the masses. As a consequence, the people of Kumily live in harmony with their wild neighbours, and incidences of conflict with wildlife are almost unheard of.

This year, the Wildlife Week celebrations at Kumily promise to be bigger and better than ever. Starting Tuesday, the 2 nd of October, a slew of activities, including spot quizzes at the Thekkady boat landing, televised quizzes, major cultural and literary competitions, seminars, nature documentary screenings and public awareness rallies are slated to be held at Kumily and Thekkady. The celebrations will culminate in a grand finale on October 8 th , when the state-wide closing ceremony will be held in Kumily town. The Hon. Minister for Forests, Sports and Cinema, Shri. K. B.
