Jamshedpur,Aug.8: Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power company, has been relentlessly working towards the conservation and saving of Mighty Mahseer through its Act for Mahseer movement.
In line with its commitment to this sensitive cause and in anticipation of upcoming Mahseer Day celebrations on the 8th of August 2016; Tata Power organized an educational cum informative visit for school children to its world renowned Mahseer hatchery at Lonavala. The school children also participated in a drawing competition on the theme of “Stop Water Pollution & Save Mahseer”.
This initiative is a part of Tata Power’s ‘Act for Mahseer’, a sustainable programme focused at conservation of the Mahseer, an endangered species of fish that was undertaken in 1975.
As part of its preparations to celebrate Mahseer day; Tata Power conducted a sensitization session for the Club Enerji school children at its Mahseer Hatchery at Lonavala.
The students were walked through the entire breeding process cycle of Mahseer and sensitized on the habitats of Mahseer.
The children were also enlightened on how Mahseer is an indicator of fresh water bodies and one of the main reasons for the species being endangered is due to water pollution.
The programme also educated the children about other reasons behind why this species of fish is staring at extinction.
