Prime Minister's Message for the Wildlife Week

 

1 October 2010
New Delhi 

India is richly endowed with biodiversity and is home to a fascinating array of wildlife, including major species like the tiger, lion, elephant and rhinoceros. Our protected areas and other natural ecosystems offer a wide range of tangible as well as intangible benefits.

We are guardians of this treasure and it is our responsibility to protect it for posterity. This could be best achieved by harmonizing our development imperatives with conservation concerns. It is neccessary that all Indians recognize this and cooperate towards conserving our irreplacable wildlife.

Wildelife week coincides with the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the postle of non-violence. His ideal of non-violence towards all living beings should guide us in understanding our relationship with wildlife. On this occasion, let us reaffirm our commitment to conserving our wildlife.
