Pyongyang, May 11 (KCNA) — Broad masses are drawn into the March-July activities for protecting useful animals in the DPRK.
The Central Committee of the DPRK Natural Conservation Union is explaining to working people and school youth and children across the country in easy terms the significance and importance of the protection of useful animals and its ways.
On the other hand, it is putting efforts into the protection and propagation of more than 100 species of animals and over 410 species of birds inhabiting at least 200 nature reserves including such mountains of scenic beauty of Korea as Mts. Paektu, Kumgang, Myohyang and Kuwol and in parks.
Well-combined species of tall trees, shrubs and fodder plants are being planted in the nature reserves in Hyangsan, Pakchon and Nyongbyon counties, North Phyongan Province, northwestern region of Korea, for the habitation of useful animals.
Measures to prevent diseases affecting the life and growth of animals have been taken in spring in Pyoksong County, South Hwanghae Province, and Kangdong County, Pyongyang City, by sterilizing habitats of animals and spraying parasiticide there.
In North Hwanghae and North Phyongan provinces, thousands of pheasants are set free regularly every year.
Middle and primary schoolchildren all over the country hang out lots of bird nests around their villages, at the foot of mountains, in parks and recreation grounds.
