The Jammu and Kashmir Department of Tourism and the Sanctuary Nature Foundation (SNF) in Srinagar organized Bird Festival 2022.
The state is blessed with wonderful biodiversity including birds.
Earlier on Monday, the Bird festival 2022 was organized to share the natural heritage with visitors and local people.
Meanwhile, Deputy Director of the Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Department, Khalid Peer said, to create awareness about the birds found in Jammu and Kashmir the event was organized in collaboration with the Sanctuary Nature Foundation.
“The students of the school were invited because they are the future and similar programs will be organized in other areas of the valley in the coming days,” Peer said.
Peer further said, “We are in discussions with SNF regarding bird photo exhibition, bird watching, and other such activities to celebrate annual events. An agreement will also be signed soon. It is an industry and thus the focus of the department is on it. Pictures and books on eco-tourism were also exhibited today and the audience was amazed to see the vast biodiversity of Kashmir.”
Moreover, many students attended this event and said it was a good experience and it helped them learn many things.
However, in celebration of Wildlife Week, the event was organized and school children were very much impressed.
