BAPS Volunteers Plant Trees
Sydney, Australia

27 July 2003

The increasing rate of deforestation has affected the health of our global environment. In line with BAPS' environmental care activities, BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir, Sydney had organized a tree planting day on the 27 July 2003. The importance of the event was significant this year as Australia has gone through a lot of environmental damage in the last couple of years. For two consecutive years Australia has been battling devastating bushfires which has destroyed hectares of pristine rainforests. To make matters worst, Australia is just recovering from one of the worst droughts in decades. Recognizing an opportunity to restore the local environment, the enthusiastic volunteers of BAPS Sydney braved one of the coldest mornings this year, and planted more than 200 saplings in the local park.
