Aalo, Feb 28: The West Siang District Administration in collaboration with the Siang team of Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE-Siang), along with the Forest and Tourism Department, will hold the inaugural edition of the Aalo Bird Walk titled "Feathers and Footsteps," scheduled on March 2 and 3 next.
The event packs an array of engaging activities, including educational talks on bird identification, the significance of bird conservation, and a fun quiz, complemented by exploratory walks in selected spots near Aalo to document diverse avian species led by experienced birders and conservation scientists from ATREE.
The Conference Hall at the DC’s Office at Aalo will serve as the venue for the pre-walk orientation and educational talks, along with the post-walk quiz and valedictory function.
"We are thrilled to join hands with ATREE-Siang to organize the first ever Aalo bird walk offering residents and nature enthusiasts a unique opportunity to connect with Aalo's avian diversity" said Ms. Mamu Hage, the District Commissioner of West Siang herself an avid birder. "Such activities will not only encourage the youth and our conservation efforts but also garner a passion for bird watching and research activities,” she added.
"Given the ubiquitous presence of birds, they serve as an excellent entry point for individuals keen on observing and documenting biodiversity," noted Dr. Rajkamal Goswami, who leads the ATREE-Siang team based out of Pasighat. "One doesn't require elaborate equipment or specialized skills to begin observing birds— just a deep-rooted love for nature, keen observation skills, and a sense of wonder," he emphasized.
