Every year on 11th September, National Forest Martyr’s Day is marked and observed in the country. It is a day to pay tribute to those who sacrificed their lives to protect the wildlife, forests, and jungles in India. There are still many communities and villages where the only source of livelihood is forest. Also, people protect the flora and fauna as their own family. Many even risk their lives guarding and protecting it; which is why the day is observed to pay tribute and hail their contributions.
