Forest department carried inspection

GOA: The state forest department carried out an inspection at the site of large-scale felling of mangroves on internal bunds of the Grande-O-Neura khazan, at Neura on Thursday, following a complaint by locals over the illegal activity. The Goa State Biodiversity Board (GSBB) had requested the Goa Coastal Zone Management Authority to initiate action in the matter and submit a report regarding the illegality, as it involved extensive clearance of mangroves in the riverine area of the Zuari.

In his complaint, Kanta Naik, a Neura villager, had stated that the managing committee of the local tenants’ association had cleared the area of the internal bund. After his complaint to the coastal body, the GSBB and the forest department, two forest officials inspected the destroyed mangroves on Thursday. A report is expected to be submitted to the coastal body and the GSBB, which had asked the department to inform it about action taken in the matter.
