Being aware of the biodiversity is the key to protecting the fragile ecosystem and threatened species. Inspired with the idea, Ministry of Environment & Forest in collaboration with Department of Science & Technology has started a train ‘the Science Express – Biodiversity Special’, which is an interesting and educative exhibition on wheels, on the occasion of World Environment Day. The train is scheduled to cover more than 100 stations across the country between June 5 & December 22, 2012, travelling almost 18,000 km, halting for 3-4 days at each of the 52 locations.
