Minister expresses concern over disappearance of birds

Bangalore: Bangalore University has made efforts to protect the trees on its campus and the students' initiative was important in conserving natural resources, which were depleting, Vice-Chancellor H.A. Ranganath said here on Wednesday.

"We need the support of the State Government and the academics in the university to take up more such programmes for conserving the environment," the Vice-Chancellor said at the "Environ Fest" organised by the Environmental Science Department of Bangalore University as part of the World Environment Day celebrations.

Minister for Higher Education D.H. Shankarmurthy said birds around the city had almost disappeared today. "Without realising that our overexploitation of nature will result in scarcity of natural resources for the future generation, we have been exploiting it' mindlessly," he said. Later he presented the Parisara Ratna awards to B.G Sudha, Dean of Education, Bangalore University, and B.N. Ramaiah, General Manager, State Bank of Mysore.
