From puddles of water housing beautiful pug-marks marks of animals to termite mounds, Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary, New Delhi, has it all!
An Educational cum Environmental Awareness Visit was organised for the students of B.Sc. (Hons.) Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics of Manav Rachna University to the Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary, New Delhi. Approximately forty students and four faculty members visited the lush green sanctuary. Dr. Ahamad, Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary, organised the ‘Nature Trail’ and explained the medicinal importance of the plants and the ecological importance of insects like dragon flies.
The students loved watching the documentary based on the life cycle of butterflies and understood how to create butterfly habitat using simple ways. Further, the students also saw the ‘Insect House’, a very unique concept being developed for the first time in India to attract different varieties of insects. Great enthusiasm and interactive participation made it an exuberant educational visit.
