Awareness camp to protect Amur Falcon held

Amur falcon, is one of the migratory birds, which comes from Siberia to the North-eastern states for a few days. However, officials of the forest department and bird lovers are not happy with large scale trappings of these winged friends.

To create awareness among the people a one day literacy camp was organised in Tamenglong district of Manipur on Saturday by the People for Animals and the forest department.

District collector R.H. Golmei deplored the practice of the killing of migratory birds. These winged friends are taking shelter in Manipur for a few days only.

While coming to Loktak lake in Manipur the migratory birds mostly have to cross some North-eastern States, and Tamenglong is one place where they are constantly targeted.
