Siruthuli holds eco-training programme

An eco-training programme – ‘Sittukkaludan Siruthuli’- is being organised every Friday for students by Siruthuli, a Coimbatore-based non-governmental organisation working to rejuvenate the water sources

Objective

The objective of the programme was to ensure that the next generation grew up with the principles of being eco-friendly and water-wise.

In the last session held on February 15, which was also the 25 session, the 25-odd students from various educational institutions took part in the ‘Great Backyard Bird Count’ (GBBC) under the guidance of P. Jeganath from Nature Conservation Foundation, Valparai.

GBBC, an annual four-day global birding event that engages bird watchers of all ages create a real-time snapshot of the various birds’ locations.

It began in the city on Friday and conclude by Monday.

The students counted a total of 168 birds belonging to 19 different species in a span half an hour. This data would be uploaded into the GBBC website - www.ebird.org - by creating an account, which could be done free of cost.

The 16th annual bird count was being done across the globe by individual volunteers’ participants who tally the number of individual birds of each species they see during this count period and enter the data.
