Season Three of Zero Hunting Draws to a Close!
Another dramatic, action-filled year passes. Just like in 2013 and 2014, there continues to be no killings of Amur Falcons during the recently concluded season along the Doyang reservoir, Nagaland. Their numbers were at all-time record levels!
October 2015 marked four years since the massacre of hundreds of thousands of falcons were discovered in Nagaland and published on Conservation India — that led to a major global outcry and the start of a conservation campaign.
Amur Falcon Roost in Longleng – Prior to visiting Doyang, the NWBCT team visited Yaongyimchen village in Longleng District, North East of Doyang. The forests around this village are another significant stopover and roosting site for the falcons in the Northeast. This village has been the centre of a quiet conservation revolution for several years.
