Lake Census 2020

Please participate in the Lake Census 2020. 
See the mail below from Dr. S. Subramanya, renowned birder and conservationist. 

Dear Friends,
This is a great opportunity for all of us to showcase the status of our wetlands and waterbirds in Bangalore. Since the High Court has evinced keen interest in knowing the status of our waterbirds and their wetlands in light of the 1989 Midwinter Waterfowl Census, I feel it is our collective responsibility to rise to the occasion to survey our wetlands for waterbirds. The results of the census that we showcase in comparison to the 1989 survey will have unending impact, where the judiciary can see how our waterbird status have changed due to mindless development of their habitats. The decisions that the High Court may take will have far-reaching effects to influence the way one needs to treat our waterbodies as waterbird habitats, not just in Bangalore, but across the country. 

Let us show to everyone across the country that we care for our birds that we love to watch and their habitats in our city. 

Please go, Register and lend your time and support for counting birds this January. 
I am committed to this 100%. Rain or shine, I will go.

Subbu.
