Ever since its formation in the year 2000 to preserve the eco-system, the ‘Lanu zunga (young generation)’ of Chuchuyimpang village is doing a tremendous job to conserve the ecology.
On Tuesday the Lanu zunga introduced 20,000 fish hatchlings in Kongyong rivulet, which was donated by Lipokienba Tatar, owner of Oasis Fish Nursery, Chuchuyimpang. Temsumoa, chairman of Chuchuyimpang village council, appreciating the works done by Lanu zunga, said village council were always ever ready to extend assistance to the group.
Speaking on the occasion, T. Yashi Jamir DFO Mokokchung, lauded the Lanu Zunga for their tireless work for the promotion of conservation of the eco-system even without the help of the government and other various agencies. He also added that the Lanu zunga’s yeoman service to the society is deeply appreciated and furthermore encouraged them to be a living example to the Nagas.
It must be mentioned that Kongyong Community Reserved Forest was implemented by Lanu zunga with the help of village council and well-wishers only, without seeking any assistance even from the government or other NGO’s.
They found that 40 per cent of the previously released wild animals were in the vicinity of the reserve, that the remaining animals have migrated to the nearby jungles.
They also said the presence of bears, deer’s and even tigers, which were not seen in the reserve were found to be habituating in the said reserve now.
During 2009, they started a mission to protect the bio-diversity by demarcating several hectares of land belonging to the village, under the name of ‘Kongyong Community Reserved Forest’, where they have already released several hundred pairs of indigenous chickens, jungle fowls and other various wild birds and animals till date.
