The Watershed Organization Trust is taking concrete steps towards conservation of avifauna around the Centre. In order to create a refuge, We have planned to phase out exotic species and replace them with bird-friendly indigenous trees. However, this will be done carefully without altering the existing landscape significantly. Furthermore, nest boxes will be installed and artificial water holes created. Also, in order to make the environment free of chemicals, farmers are being educated and made aware of the fallout from excessive utilization of pesticides.All these efforts might bring a better future to the winged denizens of Darewadi watershed.
