29th October 2013. At the end of the Forest Protection module for the certificate course in Conservation, Environment and Forestry Studies at UWICE, Mr. Damber Singh Rai, the Chief Forestry Officer of Wangchuck Centennial Park was invited as a guest lecturer. He delivered a lecture on the importance of protecting our forest and the crucial role that foresters have to play in terms of protecting and promoting our conservation effort.

He said that the preserving of our natural resources and keeping our country under 60% of forest cover is national priority. However, the lack of infrastructure, increase in the illegal activities, and lack of human resources are some of the serious challenges the department faces in implementing the conservation policy.
