Today, the 2ndof June is celebrated across the country as the Social Forestry Day and more importantly as the Coronation anniversary of our Fourth Druk Gyalpo, His Majesty King Jigme Singye Wangchuck. It was in 1974 on this day, our beloved King ascended the golden throne.
His Majesty King Jigme Singye Wangchuck has been an exemplary leader, whose conservation leadership is revered globally, for which the King and the Country has received many International Awards. Today, because of our Monarchs visionary leadership, Bhutan is considered as an exemplary nation intertwined with rich environmental values and ethics. Our nation has been in the limelight for prioritizing environmental conservation and putting in efforts to strike a balance between the growing trend of land-use change and maintaining the constitutional requirement of securing at least sixty percent of land under forest cover, for all times to come.
