Help The Birds-2013.
During Kite-flying festival, (14th-15th January) thousands of birds fall victim to the sharp glass powder coated “maanja” with injuries on their wings or just about anywhere, bleeding them to death. This festival is one of the most unfortunate manmade disasters for the avian community of our city. More than 3000 birds get 'cut' every year in Ahmedabad (India) alone, last year At Jivdaya charitable hospital treated 2085 birds.
The kite strings are so sharp that it sometimes chop off the whole wing!! The festival is round the corner and we need to prepare ourselves to save as many lives as we can.
HTB 2013 is coming up. HTB (Help the Birds) campaign is organized every year in Ahmedabad by many N.G.O. with join hand with forest department, Wildlife Rescue Center during the Kite-flying festival (Uttarayan) as an effort to save the injured birds from certain death and giving them a survival chance. Our primary focus will be birds of endangered species, especially White-Rumped Vultures for creating Vulture Safe Zone. This festival responsible for 50 WRV casualties just from 2009 to 2012, who will want to save these precious birds and YOU, can be one of them. We need your involvement to make this campaign a success! There are several ways in which you CAN help, even if you are not comfortable with working hands on with injured birds. Apart from rescue, we will need volunteers for attending rescue phone calls, documentation, education / awareness programs, helping vets in the Operation Theater and follow up treatment, transfer of birds, transportation of injured birds, data collection, donation and much more… This entire works is extremely important for the campaign. This is your chance to help the urban bird life. Every one of us can make a big difference in saving lives of the innocent feathered friends. Let us all join hands and try to help them in whichever way we can. We want veterinary doctors.
