Santragachhi Jheel to turn a ‘silence zone’
Santragachhi Jheel, close to Kolkata have been a haven for migratory birds over decades. But off late, thanks to the construction and vehicular pollution, Santragachhi has witnessed a depleting population of birds. But due to a recent notification by the state government, the migratory moorhens and lesser whistling ducks will soon get a serene place this winter when they visit the area.
WHERE HAVE ALL NEELKANTHA BIRDS GONE?
The notice states that it is now the responsibility of the Howrah Municipal Corporation, Howrah Police Commissioner and South-Eastern Railway to ensure the area turns a noise free zone to help the birds nest in peace.
