National Forest Martyrs Day 2021

National Forest Martyrs Day is observed in India on September 11 every year to remember the sacrifices of those who gave their lives to protect the forests and wildlife across the remote corners of the country.
On this day, in 1730, over 360 people of the Bishnoi tribe led by Amrita Devi, objected to the felling of trees and due to their protest to save the trees were killed in Khejarli, Rajasthan on the orders of the king.
On this day, let’s value the sacrifices and understand the value of trees and lets pledge never to destroy or harm any tree.
