The State Government recently appointed Satyanarayan Das as Honorary Wildlife Warden for Mayurbhanj district.
Das, a resident of Kaligali in Cuttack, would work for two years along with three others from Mayurbhanj also appointed by the Government.
Das (55) was appointed following a recommendation from the Forest Department. Prior to this he was the honorary wildlife warden for Jagatsinghpur district until October 2011.
STR being in the news for all the wrong reasons including frequent poaching, the wildlife activists hope that his appointment would help the forest officials check wildlife-related crimes.
