It is heard that the Eranakulam district administration has identified 1,000 acres at Kuttampuzha panchayat in Kothamangalam for the proposed naval armament depot (NAD) and a recommendation for the same will be forwarded o the state government for approval.

The administration identified the 2 km stretch of forest land between Kuttampuzha bridge and Annathara after visiting four sites in the district following the Union governments directive.The other places under consideration were Ayyampuzha,Bhoothathankettu and Edakkattuvayal.The proposed area is very near to the Historic Bhoothathan Kettu Dam and a good Rain forest.

The recommendation identifying Kuttampuzha will be sent to the state forest department for approval.It is up to the state government to take a final call on it.

It is also heard that only 15% of the land will be utilized for the project in the initial stage and the main construction activities will be underground.

As per the reports comes out if it is true one more rain forest will lost us for ever.....

In a unique initiative to recognise outstanding work in biodiversity conservation at the grass roots level, the Union Government and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have jointly presented awards to models of biodiversity governance from across the country.

The awards were presented to the representatives of the winners at a ceremony held on the sidelines of the ongoing UN convention on biological diversity here last night.

A press release from the UNDP quoted Union Environment Minister Jayanti Natarajan, as saying "Conserving biodiversity and harnessing it on a sustainable basis is critical for realising development goals. Biodiversity governance in India needs to enable this on a sustained and equitable basis."

Welcoming the support of UNDP as a partner, the minister announced that the India Biodiversity Awards will now be an annual feature, to mark International Biodiversity Day on May 22 each year.

The winners of the awards were: Pir Jahania Jungle Suraksha Samiti from Odisha in the community stewardship category, Shankarpur Village Gram Panchayat from Maharashtra in the category of decentralised management, Van Utthan Sansthan from Rajasthan in the category of co-management and Periyar Tiger Reserve in the protected areas category.
