The Department of Forest has taken strict action where sanddunes are being destroyed and illegal #tree cutting is taking place, opposite Survey No. 123/1 Madlawada, Morjim. More than 30 trees have been felled illegally.
An FIR has been filed against the individual involved and DCF Wildlife has been notified because it is close to the Turtle Nesting and Conservation site. It amounts to a disturbance and a violation of Schedule 1, and officials have been directed to take the necessary action. The TCP Department has also been advised to issue a stop work order and submit the file to the government for licence revocation.
Protection and conservation of the environment is a significant and pressing area of concern to us, and anyone who violates the law will face severe consequences.
