Forests are considered “biodiversity hot spots” because they have very high level of species richness and a high degree of endemism.

A person can effectively contribute towards the management of forests and wildlife by:

(i) Using fewer products which are  derived directly from forests and wildlife such as wood, animal skin etc.

(ii) Avoid discriminate cutting down of forest for the industrial purpose.
