ActionDescriptionStatus
Field activities Bird Survey at Koonthankulam Bird Sanctuary, India Surveys were conducted at the Koonthankulam Bird Sanctuary and the wetland ecosystem adjoining it. Migratory birds like garganey, pintail duck, wigeon, bar headed goose and greater flamingo visit the sanctuary and pelican, painted stork, white ibis, black ibis and herons build nests there and breed. Due to climate change, a cyclonic wind swept away many trees that resulted in falling of many pelican and painted stork fledglings numbering 400 and majority of them died and the remaining are handicapped.
