Sunil Limaye, Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife), paid a visit to Heritage Conservation Laboratory at Seminary Hills during Wildlife Week recently and gathered information about how to preserve trophies of wild animals scientifically.
The lab is being run jointly by Forest Department and Heritage Conservation Services for protecting wildlife trophies. On the occasion, Leena Zilpe-Hate, Director of the laboratory, appealed to Limaye to take all the trophies of the department all over Maharashtra for preservation purposes. He assured to do so and make available a big laboratory for preserving the trophies.
Limaye said that the trophies were the valuable treasure and hence we must protect them. This is the property of the Forest Department and if it preserves the trophies then the department would develop a museum at Gorewada, where tourists can watch them. And Dr B V Kharbade provided all the scientific information to the PCCF.
Bharat Singh Hada, Deputy Conservator of Forest, was present on the occasion. Kundan Hate, the member of the State Board for Wildlife, proposed a vote of thanks.
