Mumbai: Amid a campaign by Mumbaito retain its green cover — through activism and at times with government help — a nature conservation organisation has ringed over a million birds in India, officials said, resulting in more than 3,000 recoveries from 29 countries spanning five countries.
Meanwhile, to mark 134 years in nature conservation by the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS), Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday visited the centre to release a much researched Indian Bird Migration Atlas.
The Atlas, by Dr S. Balchandra, Tuhina Katti and Dr Ranjit Manakadan, details the origins, migration routes as well as stopovers and wintering sites of birds migrating in and outside the Indian sub-continent.
It also includes discussions on the finds of satellite-tracking and geolocator-tagging studies on ‘Indian Birds’ undertaken by BNHS and other organisations in recent times.Read on
