THALAVADI: As Mohith Agadi would say, “Environment is no one’s property to destroy; it’s everyone’s responsibility to protect.” In this present age, many of us forget our responsibility to safeguard mother earth. We destroy nature to suit our own purposes. With this in mind, Nazareth Illam joined the Sathyamangalam Wildlife Sanctuary to show the importance of nature and the environment. Thus, on June 5th, Nazareth Illam, with the help of the Sathyamangalam Wildlife Sanctuary Department together with the Staff, residents, and some volunteers, planted 50 trees and organized a rally from Nazareth Illam to Soosaipuram promoting the protection of the environment. The Thalavadi Range Officer, Mr. Sathees (Ranger), Fr. Lourduraj (Director), Fr. Gnanaraj (Administrator), and some Forest Department Officers took part in the rally with our residents and the nearby village people. Our residents joined the people of Soosaipuram Village and their youth and cleaned the surrounding areas by clearing all the discarded plastics. The residents of the Nazareth Illam were happy to participate in this social awareness program of protecting our environment for our livelihood.
