Like every year, Aaranyak is organising a three days winter camp entitled, “Winter Camp cum Field Training on Nature Studies and Conservation” with the objective to capacitate its members. This camp will be held from 15-17 February 2020, at Maibong Resort, Burha Mayong, near Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, Morigaon District, Assam. The purpose of this camp is to build capacity of participants to create a trained and capable citizen force to work for nature conservation, education and environment protection who will contribute to Aaranyak’s work as well as act independently for environmental causes on their own. The program also seeks to provide a platform for members from all zones (western, central and eastern) of Assam to meet, interact and build up solidarity among the Aaranyak members. A total of 29 members from different places of Assam have join to attend the programme.

The camp was formally inaugurated at 11 o’clock on 15th February 2020 with flag hoisting by Mr Ranjan Bhuyan, President, Aaranyak. Besides, Dr Bibhab Kr.Talukdar, CEO and Secretary General, Aaranyak, Dr. Parthajyoti Das, Organising Secretary, Aaranyak, Mr Mukul Tamuli, Range Officer, Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary and other staff and members of Aaranyak were present during the inauguration. Mr Tamuli delivered a speech on the management of the sanctuary and how the management has involved local youths in conservation of this area.

After the opening ceremony, a training session on bird-watching was conducted by Dr. Bibhab K. Talukdar, Dr Bibhuti P. Lahkar, and Mr Udayan Borthakur. Following the session, the participants were taken to the nearby wetlands for bird watching. The first day ended with the discussion on field observation and sharing their experience.
