"Forests and home to people and animals. Forests are exploited due to our greed and need. Greed and needs of the people are increasing and pressure on forests and natural resources are increasing. This phenomenon is inevitable.

To manage and protect our forests, we have to firstly manage the people. We have to inculcate the sense of ownership of the forests to people."
