Hero MotoCorp donates 300 motorcycles, 600 helmets

Hero MotoCorp, India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, presented the Himalayan Eco Restoration, Biodiversity Conservation, and Livelihood Enhancement Society with 300 motorcycles and 600 helmets on Friday in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand. 
The programme is part of the company’s “Hero WeCare” Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) platform, and it aims to help forest department staff striving to maintain biological diversity in Uttarakhand‘s forests. The decision was made in light of Hero MotoCorp’s “unwavering commitment to the preservation of biological diversity under Project Hero Green Drive,” according to a statement released by the firm. 
Along with 600 helmets, Hero MotoCorp provided over 300 motorcycles, each with hooters, a spotlight, a leg guard, a helmet lock, and waterproof side bags. Forest guards and rangers will be able to conduct efficient active patrols in the forest thanks to these motorcycles, which will increase their mobility and allow them to keep an eye on poaching, illegal deforestation, forest fires, and the preservation of trees, forests, and wild animals.
