black bucks habitat .
By the efforts of Maitri Clubthe chief Minister Sri Nabeen Patnaik ordered
to Dist Admission to stop the road work to save the black buck habitat. The
rare wild black bucks are present near Vetanai & Balipadar of Ganjam Dist.
for which ,we are proud of them.their
natural habitat has been gradually damaged by man made causes. As per our
survey a watch tower has been made near Bhetanai (as shown in the map) by
forest Dept to watch black buck. The surrounding villages of black buck are:
Charimile Chaka, Banabali, Sidhanai , Badagada and Bhetanai .Awell road is already present for said
villages for their communication . We came to know from people that a 3KMs road
has been made from watch tower to Badagada by Forest Dept . which divides theblack buck area
in to two parts. Now a road is under construction which will link Banabali Sidhanai and badagada . So the people started selecting their shortest way to
touch main road through black buck habitat.
We informed to all the official concern and Smt Maneka Gandhi about the constructed road.
After inquirythe CM Orissa ordered to
stop the road work
