Arunachal Air Gun Surrender Abhiyan reaches Roing; Over 2000 laid down

The Airgun Surrender Abhiyan is spinning new hopes of wildlife conservation since it was launched in March, 2021.

The Air Gun Surrender Abhiyan in Arunachal Pradesh is bringing in revolution as far as preservation of wildlife is concerned in the frontier state where hunting has been a community practice throughout history.

Taking this a step ahead, the Dibang Forest Division in Roing has organized a mega airgun surrender ceremony at Giidi Notko.

It may be mentioned that the Airgun surrender Abhiyan is spinning new hopes of wildlife conservation since it was launched in March, 2021.

Over 2000 airguns have been surrendered in the state so far.

Arunachal Pradesh has more than 500 species of birds. This includes some indigenous species which aren’t found anywhere else in the world.

But recently the number of birds in the forests of Arunachal Pradesh declined due to hunting.

To rectify the situation, an ‘air gun surrender campaign’ has been launched and people of all communities of Arunachal Pradesh have accepted it with an open heart and they are participating in it.

The ‘Air Gun Surrender Abhiyan’ was launched in March 2021, in Arunachal Pradesh and the initiative received praise and a special mention by PM Modi in Mann Ki Baat last year.
