Campaign to save the House Sparrow

Sudhir Vasudeva, CMD of the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), on Tuesday launched the ‘Save the House Sparrow’ campaign to mark the 57th ONGC Day at Tel Bhavan here.

The campaign, initiated by ONGC in association with Action and Research for Conservation in Himalayas (ARCH), a local NGO, aims at the conservation of the dangerously dwindling house sparrow population in the locality and the surrounding region.

“The decline in the number of the sparrows is a natural alarm bell for environmental degradation and we must save them before it is too late,” Mr. Vasudeva said, adding that predator and accident-proof nest boxes will be installed on the campus to help the birds find a better place to rest.
