Question:

Have there been changes in forest areas where you live? Find out what these changes are and why they have happened?

Answer:

There I have seen a number of changes in forest areas around my locality. Some of them are as follows:

  • The tribes living inside the forest areas are gradually leaving their conventional occupation and shifting to the city area for education and jobs.
  • Forest guards have been appointed by the Forest Department to check the illegal entry in the forests.
  • Although the number of trees in the forest has increased , rainfall has decreased in recent years which has affected the growth of trees.
  • The hunting of wild animals has been prohibited.
