Where are located India’s Vulture Breeding Facilities ?
India’s Environment ministry has set up three vulture breeding facilities at
- Rani, Guwahati (Assam),
- Pinjore (Haryana) and
- Buxa (West Bengal).
The breeding facilities had started some years back but it takes time for the reproduction amongst vultures. The projects are expensive but the real idea is that if vultures totally disappear there should be some at least in captivity which can be released. Vulture conservation movement in the subcontinent will get a boost with Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) expecting 30 young vultures to be released from the breeding facilities and also marking of vulture safe zones at three places in India by 2014. This info is as per statement of Dr Asad Rehmani, senior member of National Board for Wildlife and Director Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS). (Noted from The Hindu)
