LAHORE: Under the Green Pakistan program, the Department of Conservation Wildlife is launching three major projects in Punjab including development of Namal Lake, Wildlife Reserve at Headbloke and black deer breeding in Chulistan.
Under the Green Pakistan program, millions of new trees have been planted in Punjab where various projects are being launched for wildlife protection, conservation and development and wildlife tourism.
Hafiz Ahmed, project director of the Green Pakistan Program, said that a number of development works would be started in the Nimal Lake and Achhali complex.
There are four natural lakes where millions of migrants come to Siberia every year. Under the plan, measures for the cleanliness of these lakes, reservations for wildlife protection will be made for tourists. This is a place which is well known worldwide under the Ramesh Agreement.
Mian Hafeez Ahmed said that the second civilization that is about to begin in the month is the establishment of the Wildlife Game Reserve at Headbloke. There is a large number of tourists here, but now Punjab Wildlife will make resorts here on 732 acres of land and make this place the best place for tourism.
Thirdly, the state is raising black deer in Cholistan. Mian Hafiz Ahmed says that Kalaharan is a native of Cholistan, largely undeveloped due to growing population, natural habitat. He said that Kalaharan was sent from Pakistan to other countries where he is breeding but we have locals who are suffering from Kalaharnadumi.
He said that the center would be set up for black deer breeding in Cholistan where DNA certified bread would be crossed with local bread. And again the Kalaharan will be released into the jungle. He said that as the deer in Cholistan will now be present in large numbers, the Kalaharan will appear here. He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan would be the cornerstone of these projects. These projects will begin this year.
According to Wildlife officials, huge projects will be launched in Punjab, which will create the province’s largest and most innovative breeding farm in the forest of the homeland. Breeding of domestic and exotic animals, birds in all the zoos and wildlife parks of the province here will be done locally and we will not have to ask for rare breeds and birds from overseas.
Similarly, computerized chips will be installed for rare species of animals and birds present in 14 wildlife parks in Punjab. These chips will make it easier to understand the routine of these animals and birds, gain accurate and scientific knowledge of the diseases and health conditions they have, which will make it easier to take steps to improve the growth of these animals and birds.
