Be sensitive to wildlife, photographers told

The photographic society should be more sensitive towards wildlife, said M Madan Gopal, additional chief secretary department of forests, environment and ecology.

He was speaking at the conclusion of the three-day judging of the 17th Nature Biennial Photography World Cup of Federation Internationale de L’Art Photographique (FIAP), organised by Federation of Indian Photography (FIP) in the City recently. 

Gopal said that in the world of digital and mobile photography, everybody wants the best frame of an animal and they will chase them in the wild. 

The photographic society should follow some protocols. They should not disturb the natural habitat of wildlife. Many tourists visit forest areas for picnic. There are parks for picnic, the forest areas should be conserved and kept clean.
