Appreciating the good work of All Dodo Youth Association in organizing the awareness camp, Babu also urged the inhabitants of the area to generously contribute sufficient land for construction of inter-village roads.

Circle Officer Yazali Tashi Wangchu Thongdok lauded the efforts of the local public and All Dodo Youth Association for their initiatives in conserving the flora and fauna and protection of natural vegetation of their area. He pointed out that Yachuli Forest Range was located adjoining to Talley Valley Wildlife Sanctuary and urged the people to preserve the indigenous species of the birds and animals of the area.

Yachuli Range Forest Officer Likha Obi urged the people to avoid illegal hunting, pouching and felling down of trees in the range. If anybody is found to be indulging in theses illegal activities in my jurisdiction, the guilty persons would be booked under the Wildlife Act 1972 and Assam Forest Conservation Act, he cautioned.

While explaining that forests were the sources of drinking water, local leader Joram Tath also appealed the people to abstain themselves from rampant destruction of their flora and fauna and urged them to save the natural vegetation to ensure availability of drinking water in the villages. He also urged the Yachuli Forest Sub-Division to organize afforestation drive from time to time.
