Village Windbreak Protection Project Launched in Rongkong
On October 12, 2011, our third project of Vale Award was launched in Tingkey County’s Rongkong Village. Led by Mr. Suolun, Director of QNNP Management Bureau Tingkey Branch, and the village chief, over 15 village members participated in the construction of the project, which is expected to be completed by the middle of the month.
The project, by setting hedges around the village’s windbreak, aims to protect about 3000 square meters’ windbreak trees from being trodden and destroyed by wandering dzhos and cattle. It will also protect small areas of farmland in between the woods. After the project, the windbreak’s ecological service in terms of lessening the force of the wind and fixing the sand will be better conserved and enhanced. In the meantime, better preserved green belt also contributes to the beautification of the village, making the village a more pleasant place to live. The project will then benefit 12 households and over 120 villagers in Rongkong.
Furthermore, a workshop on environmental conservation and windbreak services will also be conducted later after the completion of the project by Mr. Soulun, an experienced conservationist who has been working in QNNP for the past 18 years. The Pendeba Society would like to express our cordial gratitude to Mr. Suolun for his generous support and help on this project and we wish to deepen our cooperation and partnership in the near future, which we believe will surely bring concrete benefits to the conservation and stimulate community development in Tingkey County.
Additionally, thanks also go to Ms. Ciyang, Reporter from Tibet Television, who donated several bags of clothing. The clothing has been handed to Mr. Suolun, and will be given to those who need most, including people from Rongkong to have a warm winter.
