Covai Post Network

Kochi: It was an unforgettable experience for 40 youngsters from Kerala who got together at the Arlam Wildlife Sanctuary in Thalasserry in Kannur district.

The participants, belonging to various online firms, got wide range of information about forest and things associated with it.

The two-day programme ‘Kaleidoscope’ was organised by the online group ‘Let Us Go For a Camp’. Besides those from Kerala, there were members from Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Discussions centred the importance of protecting nature.

The members went on a 4-km trek led by forest watchers Biju and Sunoj who gave them an idea about various plants, trees and wildlife.

The watchers also showed them the path of rogue elephant ‘chullikomban’ which had created havoc by venturing into human settlement. The elephant is now under the custody of the forest department.

Wikipedia contributor Vinayaraj taught the members about different butterflies and the delicate eco system needed for their survival.

The members also visited Meenoottu waterfalls which was in full glory owing to copious rain.
