India: Karnataka forest department to organise festivals on importance of wolves
From The Indian Express:
The Karnataka Forest Department has planned a series of festivals before March 2022 on the importance of conservation of different varieties of fauna other than leopards, tigers and elephants.
“We have planned to come up with a wolf festival in Koppal which will highlight the need to conserve wolves, jackals and hyenas. These animals mostly live in the scrub forest regions and government wastelands. In January 2022, we have planned to organise a turtle festival in Honnavar where a marine sanctuary will come up. The marine turtles lay eggs on the coastal belt in places like Honnavar and Kundapur.
