Forest Department in cooperation with Rotary Club of Nagpur Downtown and Kingsway Hospital organised a two-day health check-up camp for forest officers and field staff members of Pench Tiger Reserve in Sillari to mark 75th years of Independence Day. Over 140 officers and forestmen took benefit of this health camp.
A team of doctors examined the forestmen and provided medicines to needy persons.
Atul Deokar, Assistant Conservator of Forest, Pench Tiger Reserve, said that the management would organise three health camps under â€˜Healthy Ranger, Healthy Natureâ€™ programme for the working staff in a year in which their family members are also allowed. The intention behind organising such camps is to keep the staff in sound condition that would ultimately help in proting protection and conservation of flora and fauna, Deokar added.
The camp was held under the guidance of Ravikiran Gowekar, Field Director, Pench Tiger Reserve, and Prabhunath Shukla, Deputy Director of the reserve. Dr Rushikesh Mayi, Nishikant Kashikar, Dr Raja Thakur, Dr Roshan, Mahesh Parab, Vijay Kadam, Arvind Joshi, Bhagat, Sanjay Parekar, Dongre and others extended active cooperation for making the event a grand success.
