Letter to the editor: Violation of wildlife law
(Muscat Daily, December 11, page 1)
This refers to the report ‘Three Gulf nationals arrested for violating wildlife law’.
Environmental degradation occurs due to less focus and less consciousness for nature. Human beings must understand the importance of animal life.
The violation of the law by people is a concern as it affects nature and its beauty.
People violate the law because of lack of awareness. There should be a monitoring system in place and concerned government authorities should enforce the laws strictly. Generally, it is felt that there is less focus on environment-related campaigns. Therefore, people’s concern over nature is becoming less. Environment conservation should be inculcated in children. Only awareness can change people’s attitude.
