JSS Law Green Guides adopt 'Viper Snakes' of Zoo

Speaking after inaugurating the annual environmental initiative of Green Guides of JSS Autonomous Law College here, he also recalled how peoples’ participation had saved destruction of decades old precious trees that were marked for destruction for road widening.  He advised the students to take up environmental issues seriously, welcomed them to visit the Zoo, take part in awareness programmes being held for children and public and become aware of the importance of protection of nature, endangered species and life of animals, flora and fauna. 

Venkatasubbaiah from Administrative Training Institute (ATI), in his presidential address, stressed the need for law students to take up civil services and opt for preference in environmental posts like Indian Forest Service, etc., since selections to such posts were not all that difficult. The demand for environmentalists were gaining ground and more particularly in the present day context of environmental degradation, climate change.

Dr K S Suresh, college principle, handed over a cheque, on behalf of more than 150 Green Guides who took part in the programme, to Markandaiah towards adopting the Viper snakes in the Zoo. He explained that due to fear syndrome people are killing the highly poisonous Vipers and they are becoming endangered species.

Vani Shree, faculty and facilitator of the Environmental issues of JSS Law college explained the activities undertaken in the previous year and the proposed activities for 2010-11. Vasanthkumar Mysoremath, MGP Social Activist and Environmentalist addressed and interacted with the students on environmental issues and gave them innovative ideas for their future activities. He desired that the Green Guides take up an event to mark the date ‘10/10/10’ as a day of environmental awareness programme. He also mentioned how the figure ‘350’ is gaining world recognition – 350 being the maximum number of PPP emission of carbon that can be held in the earth’s stratosphere,  present PPP being 392 as on date -  meaning that they have to reduce the carbon content to the level of 350 PPP by adopting an online course correction to living conditions through emission of less.
