Angami Youth Organization (AYO) on Tuesday imposed ban on jungle burning, use of air gun or sale of air gun pellets and animal hunting throughout the year in all areas under Angami jurisdiction.
Power being endorsed to AYO by all four Angami ranges to execute the prohibition, the ban would come to force with effect from publication of this notification.
Stating this during a press conference at Hotel Japfü, AYO said that it would go ahead to protect the environment and “give an eye-opener to the government” which was taking no action.
The organization decided that all villages under Angami region should reserve ten hectares or more area as reserve forest to protect and preserve forests.
