Birds play a key part in our ecosystem
Birds play an important role in environmental conservation and to highlight this, a bird festival was organized in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. Its organisers, Environmental Research Foundation & Educational Academy (ERFEA), Institute of Engineers (India) and the Chamber of Marathwada for Industry and Agriculture (CMIA) invited essays from school students on the topics such as: 'Where have our sparrows gone?', 'Is tree plantation an effective solution?', 'As a scientist how would you save our planet?', and 'Bird migration.
The festival hosted a bird photography exhibition, bird spotting events and lectures by noted environmentalists. Through this festival, people could enjoy the beauty of birds and ensure that they are protected.
