  • The Prerana Sthal is being developed in such a way that the visitors coming to visit the Parliament complex could easily see the statues of these leaders and take inspiration from their lives and philosophy. The Lok Sabha Secretariat said, that due to location at different places in the Parliament Complex, visitors were not able to view these statues conveniently.
  • In this Prerana Sthal, arrangements are also being made to provide detailed information to the visitors through modern technology regarding the lives and contributions of these great freedom fighters.

The agenda later expanded to include internet-related public policy issues, leading to the first WSIS in Geneva, Switzerland, in 2003.

Ramsar List

  • India has added two bird sanctuaries from Bihar, Nagi and Nakti – to the ‘Ramsar Sites’ list, taking the tally to 82.
  • The newest ‘Wetlands of International Importance’, both man-made reservoirs situated in the Jhajha forest range of Jamui District in Bihar, were added to Ramsar Sites as part of World Environment Day‌, observed annually on June 5.
  • These two new wetlands are man-made reservoirs situated in the Jhajha forest range of Jamui. Their catchments feature dry deciduous forests surrounded by hills,” the Secretary of the Department of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (DEFCC) of Bihar The Nakti Bird Sanctuary was developed primarily for irrigation through the construction of Nakti Dam.

  • Since the dam’s construction, the wetland and its surrounding area have provided habitat for over 150 species of birds, mammals, fish, aquatic plants, reptiles and amphibians.
  • They include globally threatened species, including the endangered Indian elephant (Elephas maximus indicus) and a vulnerable native catfish (Wallago attu).
  • A Ramsar site is a wetland site designated to be of international importance under the Ramsar Convention, also known as The Convention on Wetlands, an international environmental treaty signed on 2 February 1971 in Ramsar, Iran, under the auspices of UNESCO.

India’s First Biosphere in a Tiger Reserve

  • Two environmentalists, Jai Dhar Gupta and Vijay Dhasmana created India’s first biosphere in a tiger reserve, called the Rajaji Raghati Biosphere (RRB) within the Rajaji National Park in Uttarakhand.
  • Situated within the Rajaji National Park in Uttarakhand, the biosphere overlooks the rocky white Raghati riverbed, nestled in the Shivalik foothills.
image 211
  • The biosphere is a 35-acre private forest initiative aimed at identifying and reviving rare and endangered species of native trees while protecting the area from poachers and mining.
  • The land earmarked for RRB was previously barren and in a state of degradation. “Thousands of non-native eucalyptus trees were removed within days of acquiring the land. Subsequently, the land was contoured to retain water, prevent erosion, and promote groundwater recharge.”

  • They are also developing a second biosphere above the Koyna River in the buffer zone of the Sahyadri Tiger Reserve near Pune, Maharashtra, along the Western Ghats.
  • Jai says “We collected seeds, established a seed bank, and collaborated with biodiversity parks to germinate and cultivate saplings of trees such as haldu, rohini, mala, saal, jamun, pangana, etc, which were then planted across the biosphere,” who has also banned combustion-engine vehicles in the region.

Arctic Ice Giant Viruses

  • Giant viruses have been found on the surface of Arctic ice, according to a new, ground-breaking study led by Laura Perini from the Department of Environmental Science at Aarhus University.
  • These viruses, which can’t be seen with the human eye, have been found for the first time on the ice, living with algae.
  • This finding is important because the viruses can eat algae, which is a key factor in speeding up the melting of Arctic ice.
image 213
  • When algae on ice sheets soak up the sunshine, temperatures rise and the ice melts faster. This makes the effects of global warming worse. The giant viruses might slow down the melting process by eating these algae, acting as a natural coolant.
  • Scientists discovered these viruses by looking at DNA and mRNA from samples taken from different parts of the Arctic, like dark ice, red snow, and cryoconite holes.
  • Certain markers found in the mRNA showed that these viruses are alive and doing well, which suggests that they are still interacting with the algae that live in these icy places.
  • Giant viruses are different from other types of viruses because their genes are very complicated. This lets them do difficult biological tasks like DNA repair and replication. Their new discovery and the fact that they live on Arctic ice show how the fields of virology and environmental science are growing.

  • In wrestling, India’s Aman Sehrawat clinched the silver medal at the Budapest Ranking Series 2024 in Hungary last evening.
