Chuxi Conservation Project Successfully Completed
On October 6, 2011, Mr. Norbu delivered a workshop to 50 project participants of Chuxi Village focusing on public healthcare, wetland management, environmental conservation in QNNP and on-going projects of The Pendeba Society. The event also marked the successful completion of the Society’s Chuxi Wetland Conservation Project funded by Vale Award.
The project, by setting up a 1200-meter long enclosure around a small area of 10 hectare’s wetland near Chuxi Village, does not only protect the precious wetland ecosystems and feed for the livestock of the village, it also protects the farmlands nearby from being trodden and destroyed by horses seeking for food. The protected wetland also ensures a lasting water source that flows around the farmland and provides critical irrigation water resource for sustainable agricultural production.
Mr. Basang, Chuxi Village Chief on behalf of the village expressed gratitude to The Pendeba Society for the project and hopes that more projects of such will be carried out in his village in the near future. The Pendeba Society is also appreciative of Chuxi community for their active participation and contribution to this project, without which it cannot be a success. After the workshop, a project assessment was also conducted where we gathered valuable information about the community’s attitudes toward our project and their need, which will be of great help to planning our future projects for the community.
P.S. Our projector went broken at the end of the workshop, unfortunately. And we hope we may repair it as soon as possible in order to make sure the following workshops run successfully.
