Coinciding with the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, Wildlife Week is celebrated from 2 October to 8 October 2012 to focus importance of wildlife and to inculcate compassion towards wildlife. The A & N Islands are having a fragile eco system and a unique wildlife inhabiting the dense tropical forest, mangroves and coral reefs. 

On this occasion I appeal to all people to supplement the efforts of the Administration in preserving the wildlife of our Islands.
