"It was great interacting with the students of the Mayong government school. Most of them have been brought up near Pobitora WLS, and already have the conservation of wildlife instilled in them. We simply took a small step of orienting them towards a more positive direction of wildlife conservation through this programme” , said Dr Jimmy Borah, Senior Coordinator - Tiger Conservation Programme,WWF-India."
"These included enhancement of energy efficiency, saving land resources and minimising evaporation of water due to placing of solar panels on the banks of irrigation canals in Gujarat" he said
