  • Dear Ashwin, good story

    Dear Ashwin, good story indeed. Great Indian Bustard were seen in Nagpur too but neither government nor NGOs there paid attention to their presence and preserverance. Today, we do not have even one visiting Great Indian Bustard in Nagpur.
    Keep digging such stories..... Wish you all the best

  • This is a very sad situation.

    This is a very sad situation. Are we going to have to start a Project Tiger for every endangered creature on the list then? In a man versus beas situation we all know who will win. Can the birds not be relocated to areas less threatened by cultivation and human activity?

  • It is really outrageous that

    It is really outrageous that the most critically endangered bird of India which is protected by law is treated in this manner by politicians from the ruling party. Greed by our politicians has already caused immense damage to our country's environment.

  • now a days when we actually

    now a days when we actually started realising the value of flaura and fauna and the need to protect it , and when the project like LAVASA in Maharashtra itself has been put to hault, it is very sad that the state wildlife advisory board has approved the idea of reducing the SolapurÔÇÖs grasslands, which not only lead to the emigration of the GREAT INDIAN BUSTARD , but will also affect the other species.

  • since birds are free to move

    since birds are free to move to a suitable climate and environment for briding and their survival therefore you cannot just relocate them and expect to live there, they will fly away or die one by one.
    and yes not only we need to start a project tiger, but i will suggest a better project is needed to be enforced.
