Recommenced Waste Management Project

On the 2nd day of this month at 10.00am, we have successfully re-started the Waste Management Project at Wild Mahseer. The workshop was organized to train the staff and consultants at Wild Mahseer including the Eastern Himalaya Botanic Ark. Naturenomics™ lead, Mr. Gautam Baruah and Manu Saikia explained the process of managing waste developed from the respective bungalows and rest of the area. They were supported in their endeavour by the Wild Mahseer consultants. The whole process has started with a new enthusiasm with the aim of maintaining the process regularly by all members of the campus.. They were also told about the relationship of good health and hygiene to waste management.
