This man from Manipur replanted 300-acre forest by himself

A 45-year old man from Manipur, Moirangthem Loiya has replanted a whole forest named Punshilok in Imphal’s Langol hill range all by himself.

The man has been replanting the forest in the 300-acre area for the past 17 years. He spoke to a news agency where he said that the 250 species of plants and 25 species of bamboo grow in the forest.

He added that birds, snakes, and other wild animals also live inside the Punshilok forest. The man’s efforts have been lauded by Kereilhouvi Angami, the Principal Chief Conservator of Forest.

He told a news agency that we welcome all those who protect the environment and are engaged in reforestation. He further said that the administration encourages other people to also take part in protection, revival, and re-forestation.

Since 2002, Loiya has been working in the forest. As per the national daily report, there was not even a single tree when he started, since it was burned down by the locals for the rice cultivation.

Earlier, Loiya was a medical representative and he quit his job to work on the forest and lives in a small hut he built himself.
