He added that never in his long-experienced life, he had seen such a move by any organisation to set up an orchid and biodiversity park with full public participation as well as technical support.
Borgohain said that Akhil Gogoi and his team must see that the project, which had been started with much enthusiasm, must maintain sustainability, adding that the KMSS has done a good job which no any government agency cared to do so to protect the remaining species of rare and vulnerable flora of Assam.
Addressing the gathering on Wednesday, KMSS chief Akhil Gogoi said that farmers from different parts of the State, including Sadiya, Dibrugargh, Nagoan, had brought orchid and other plant�s species to the Park without charging any money. In fact, donations made by the people from different walks of life had made effort of the KMSS easy to start the Orchid Park.
�Forest Man� Jadav Payeng said that climate change is due to the over exploitation of the natural forest and resources. The Park has more than 500 species of different orchid, 36 different varieties of bamboo and 200 different varieties of rice. Apart from it, about 36 different species of avifauna can be seen inside the Park.
