Environmental organizations protest dysfunction of rules to protect forest-wild animals

Environmental organizations have protested the dysfunctional role of the Forest Department to stop the killing of wild animals in Bangladesh.

Environment workers and their 33 organizations have submitted 8-point to the government for proper implementation of wild animals including elephants by the smuggling group.

They placed the demands from a sit-in program held in front of the Bon Bhaban (office of the Forest Department) at Agargaon in Dhaka on Sunday.

A total of 33 environmental organizations took part in the protest program under the Bangladesh Nature Conservation Alliance (BNCA) platform.

The united platform launched the protest for failure of the authorities concerned as well as the Forest Department to stop deforestation and killing of wild animals.

Prof Dr Kamruzzaman Majumder, convener of the BNCA and joint secretary of Bangladesh Paribesh Andolan (BAPA), presided over the program.
