The Goa Minister Vishwajit Rane announced on Tuesday that ‘no-take zones’ will be created along the picturesque beaches of North Goa to preserve and protect the environment.

Taking to Twitter, Rane announced that ‘no-take zones’ would be established at Morjim, Ashvem and Arambol beaches, a major tourist attraction in North Goa.

The term “no-take zone” refers to an area set aside by the government for the prohibition of extractive activities such as fishing, hunting, logging, mining, and drilling.

According to a tweet by the state minister of town and country planning, the activities are being conducted without the state government’s permission, and sand dunes are also being destroyed on the beaches. As a result, the department was compelled to act and protect these areas.

A research scientist, Sujit Kumar Dongre, was commissioned by the state forest department to prepare a report about no-take zones and conservation areas, focusing on nesting sites for turtles.
