The Hon’ble Vice President of India, M Venkaiah Naidu, inaugurated the Marine Interpretation Unit created at the Forest Research Centre for Coastal Ecosystem (FRCCE) in Vizag. This unit will be used to disseminate information on the marine ecosystem and to work with coastal communities. 

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, the Vice President called upon the citizens to be mindful of their actions and stressed on the need for everyone to be environmentally conscious. He added that it’s high time we mend our ways to bring the desired change in the health of our planet. 

During the Vice President’s visit to the Forest Research and Coastal Ecosystem Center in Visakhapatnam, he also inaugurated a science exhibition centre on timber biodegradation in the marine ecosystem.

Post the visit to the FRCCE centre, in a Facebook post, Vice President Venkaiah Naidu recounted his experience of visiting the centre. He wrote that the display units in the Marine Interpretation Unit showing various wood samples at progressive stages of degradation were very informative. Mr Naidu was also apprised of the bird diversity of the Eastern Ghats as well as species of birds associated with mangroves along the 114 KM long coastline of the Visakhapatnam District.

Mr Naidu expressed his happiness that the centre has distributed 100 preservative-treated catamarans made of perishable timber to the fishermen of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu as a measure towards alleviating poverty. He reiterated that “the ultimate aim of science is to bring happiness and make people’s lives better.” The Vice President lauded the centre for the good work that was being done there for the benefit of coastal communities.

The Vice President is on a four-day visit to Vizag. During this trip, Mr Naidu has been part of various major events in the city. He recently inaugurated the maiden run of 08525 Vizag – Araku Special train with Vistadome LHB Coaches.
