We are an eye witness to Digital Media and Modern Society era. It greatly benefits when a combined message of forestry and wildlife extension is delivered to the local community by graduating students who opt for forestry and wildlife management as their future profession.
The role of a Forestry and Wildlife Extension Specialist is to help people to widen their knowledge and experience beyond the immediate range of their crops and animals, to understand more fully how trees or forests fit into the pattern of their lives and how they can derive benefits. In BS-VIII, students of the Department of Forestry, Range and Wildlife Management are divided into workable groups of five to six to have an experience of tree planting event in Forestry and Wildlife Extension course. They are guided and monitored from 1. Making groups and selecting members among colleagues, 2. Selecting the planting site of their choice and subsequent visits to planting area 3. Contacting the responsible person / authority for involving in planting activity, 4. Specifying date for Spring planting, 5. Taking Department as facilitation and help in the event, 6. Inviting Head of the Department, Faculty members, Teachers of Allied disciplines, other department students etc, 7. Arranging for Planting Stock to the target area, 8. Selection of Audio-visual Aids and its use with logical reasoning, 9. Documentation of Format / Structure of community / target audience, to 10. Event Celebration Recording. Each group is given ample time to make the Spring Tree planting 2022 a memorable and successful event by involving the local community.
Through this activity, all the students learn to make a brief talk on forestry and wildlife extension to an unfamiliar and potential target group and strive to develop good Communicator abilities. It is expected that conduction of such initiatives can and would promote their professional services in future. Attached herewith are the ceremonial evidence (photos) of different group of students on Spring Tree planting 2022 Initiative.
