On Sunday , Assam state praising is become talk of the town when Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Mann Ki Baat radio broadcast praised the people of poll-bound Assam for their conservation efforts — starting with water birds in Kaziranga to turtles in temple ponds. Modi highlighted the issue based on an “interesting” post by Mayur, a “passionate” birder and nature lover from Haryana on the NaMo App.
The post called for appreciation of the people of Assam for the rise in the number of waterfowls in Kaziranga, “birds that nest not on the trees but on the water, such as ducks and others”. The Kaziranga National Park & Tiger Reserve Authority has been carrying out its annual waterfowls census for some time now, revealing the population of water birds and also about their favourite habitat
Here it is to be noted that A total of 112 species of birds have been sighted in Kaziranga National Park during this census. And of these, 58 species happen to be winter migrants from different parts of the world including Europe, Central Asia and East Asia.Apart from this Guwahati-based conservationist Bibhab Kumar Talukdar welcomed the efforts of the prime minister to highlight conservation practices carried out in Assam by both government and civil societies.
