Volunteers required for vigilance in the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) forest region, on MahaShivratri, 2nd March 2011

Like every year a vigil will be kept by various individual volunteers, NGOs along with Forest Department (FD) at forest areas falling in Mulund, Thane, Borivali for Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) & Vasai region for Tungareshwar Wildlife Sanctuary (TWLS). As you may be aware during MahaShivratri day, people enter from different directions to visit the temples around these forests. Some get inside the forests to gamble, drink, roam about, also deliberately put fire... while doing so the wildlife gets disturbed, forest fires occur, litter is spread all around, etc. Every year vigil has reduced all this to a great extent.
