On the occasion of Earth Day, 22nd April 2019, IBC’s Green Corridor Champions organised celebratory events across the country in their respective States. The mass sensitization programmers involved villagers, teachers, officials, tea estate authorities and other relevant stakeholders and aimed to raise awareness on the importance of conservation of elephants and their habitat.

As an initiative to garner social momentum, the Green Corridor Champions engaged the local communities in a myriad of elephant-themed activities, targeting the areas near the identified elephant corridors. The Earth Day observed celebrations from North-West India to Northern West Bengal to Southern India, all coming together and joining hands to secure ‘Right of Passage’ for the endangered Asian Elephant.
The Corbett Foundation (TCF) in Uttarakhand organised a consultative workshop “Manthan-A sustainable co-existence between man and nature” which addressed elephant conservation awareness and issues pertaining to human-elephant conflict situations. Various challenges in terms of the protection of elephants in the Corbett landscape were highlighted and possible solutions were discussed during the workshop.


Society for Protecting Ophiofauna & Animal Rights (SPOAR) conducted an awareness programme for the tea estate authorities and labour workers from Nepuchapur Tea garden, Northern West Bengal situated in Apalchand-Gorumara elephant corridor. The interaction session and the documentary screening by SPOAR helped spread the message of elephant conservation amongst the tea estate authorities and labour workers. While monitoring the elephant corridors for the presence of elephants and other wildlife movements, Ms Anindita and her team in Northern West Bengal found plastic bags and packages in almost all the elephant dung piles. To address the negative consequences of plastic on elephants and other wildlife in the region, the team planned to organise a plastic cleanliness drive in Rethi river bed.
In Karnataka, A Rocha organised a village level workshop comprising of panchayat members and forest officials targeting the villages adjoining Karadikal-Mahadeshwara elephant corridor, the follow-up measures and actions with regard to Asian elephant conservation were deliberated during this workshop.
Over 450 stakeholders were targeted through the series of sensitization programmes conducted on the occasion of Earth Day, celebrated in collaboration with IBC and with the support from Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN) and Stop Poaching Fund (SPF). The people across the country were extremely supportive of the initiative and willfully contributed to support the cause.
IBC is working towards empowering local stakeholders through the formation and deployment of a cadre of Green Corridor Champions (GCCs)-community-based organizations or groups of individuals which work like the eyes, ears, and voice of 101 elephant corridors identified across 11 states of India through IBCs Right of Passage Project.  The Green Corridor Champions not only monitor the elephant corridors but also sensitize, motivate and mobilize local communities, and relevant authorities on the importance of giving Right of Passage to our National Heritage Animal- the Asian elephant and protecting its habitat.

Namaste,

 Thank you very much for the generous contribution towards IBC.

In late March 2019, a rescue call for 66 vultures impacted by poisoning came in from Netaipukhuri area of Demow in Sivsagar district. Indian Birds Conservancy team from IBC QRT (Quick Response Team), Assam immediately responded and it was found to be a case of secondary poisoning.

34 were brought in for rehabilitation. After about 2 weeks of intensive treatment and care, they were released back to the wild by the joint team of Assam Forest Department (AFD), Indian Bird Conservancy (IBC) and IBC QRT.



Releasing the birds

Interestingly the vultures were released at the site of rescue itself, Netaipukhuri Jamuguri village in Sivsagar district of Assam. 66 vultures were found in Netaipukhuri area of Demow in Sivsagar district on 29 March 2019 due to secondary poisoning after feeding on a carcass, of which 32 were already dead. The joint team of AFD along with IBC QRT run by IBC rescued the remaining 34 vultures from the site to be admitted for observation and critical treatment. Out pf these three were Slender billed vultures, one was white rumped vulture and the remaining 30 were Himalayan griffons.

Out of the ones admitted, thirty were released back to the wild at Sivsagar earlier today. Three vultures despite best efforts succumbed to the poisoning while one is still recuperating at the centre.

Dr Samshul Ali, the veterinarian who closely was treating the sick vultures, said, “All the birds were affected by Organophosphate pesticide due to malicious poisoning of cattle carcass by miscreants. After our intensive management we were able to save lives of 31 of these individuals”

The birds are released under the supervision of Jayashree Naiding Tonk, DFO, Sivsagar.

We need your support to continue our work in conservation of Indian Native Birds.

Thank you for your contribution towards Indian Native Birds.


As our mission says we conserve native birds and their habitats across India. In doing so, we benefit not only Indian birds but all other species as well.
Here is a update about what we did in this month:
Previously known as Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve is one of the largest Protected areas in the country and has a strong and dedicated force of forest staff protecting it day and night.
We were there as part of IBC’s continuing efforts under its Van Rakshak Project to train, equip and boost the morale of frontline forest staff across the country. Indian Bird Conservancy (IBC), in partnership with the Karnataka Forest Department and with support from Foundation SEGRE was conducting a 3 days Wildlife Crime Prevention training for the staff of Kali Tiger Reserve.
The training curriculum includes legal and enforcement aspects of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972, as well as wildlife crime prevention components such as the basics of anti-poaching patrolling techniques, intelligence gathering, informer network and handling, search and seizure, interrogation, hunting communities, crime scene investigation and the preparation of Preliminary Offence Reports. Trainees were also briefed on relevant provisions of the Indian Evidence Act, Indian Penal Code and the Code of Criminal Proceedings, and the powers conferred on them therein for the prosecution of wildlife crimes.
B.V.Patil, Director & Conservator of Forests, Kali Tiger Reserve gave his much needed support and advice for conducting the training as well as greatly encouraged the forest staff to render their duties with full dedication.
Shridhar D Bhat, Assistant Professor from College of Forestry, Sirsi Karnataka commenced the workshop with a session on the importance of wildlife and forests.
Practical exercises on Crime scene investigations were conducted by Rajshekar, CPI, CCB from Department of police, Nagaraj Bhatt from WTI took a session on conducting anti snare walks which were followed by a session on wildlife laws by WTI Advocate Sudheer K.S.

IBC has been conducting such Wildlife Crime Prevention Training programmes under its Van Rakshak Project (VRP) since 2012. Over 17100 frontline forest personnel have been trained in over 138 Protected Areas across 18 states. VRP follows a multi-pronged strategy with four thrust areas abbreviated as TEAM: Training, Equipping, Awareness and Morale Boosting, to build capacity and strengthen the spirit of personnel in tough field conditions.

We need your support to conserve Birds and Animals. We look forward for your support..
