Recently, the village of Chengara in Alappuzha district was in the spotlight due to the initiative undertaken by its birders, youngsters and residents.
The major findings of the study are that city of Hyderabad as well as Telangana do not have disaster management plans.
The residents, who are willing to join as volunteers under the programme, can visit the website of Delhi Parks and Gardens Society and download an application form.
Officials also say that they had proposed eight sites in Karnataka to be declared as wetlands, and Ranganthittu in Mandya as a Ramsar site.
Prateep Kumar said that the Department of Forests has identified wetlands in the State and added that every effort would be made to protect wetlands in the State.
Around 23 lakes in the city are as good as ‘dead’ due to almost zero levels of Dissolved Oxygen (DO).
As a result, the waterbird diversity is down with hardly any migratory species and a lesser number of Painted Storks arrival, stated the report.
