State government has taken note that despite its best efforts to create awareness on protection and conservation of fauna of the state there were still many people indulged in trapping, catching and killing and selling of migratory birds (Amura Falcon), which was visiting several places of Nagaland. In a statement, the Nagaland chief wildlife warden Tuesday urged all the people in the state not to resort to trapping and hunting of these birds and also not to encourage selling and buying of these birds and other wildlife products. “These are migratory birds and the state is endowed with bountiful natural habitat which has provided an ideal place for them to rest and proceed further or revert back to their original destination,” the chief wildlife warden said. He also said that it was an opportunity for the people of the state from all walks of life to welcome this phenomenon and involve themselves in the conservation and protection of these birds. The chief wildlife warden pointed out that in accordance with the provisions of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972, no wild animals or birds should be trapped, killed and hunted or sold. Further, all the people have been requested to join hands with the department to conserve and protect the wildlife in the state.
