Message from President
Greetings to all, Pokhara bird society is an organization dedicated to conservation since its start and has been carrying out its activities accordingly. Considering Earth as common home for biodiversity, we carry out our activities on status, distribution, ecology and habitat conservation of birds. As we are losing important habitats like forests, wetland and grasslands, the bird species are vulnerable and some are already near extinction. In addition, the human-induced problems like unplanned urbanization, pollution, illegal hunting and poaching are adding more threats to their survival. So, we feel conservation of bird and biodiversity as urgency of hour and look forward to our common and unified endeavor of all in this goal.We would like to present our gratitude to all our advisors, collaborators , members and well-wishers, and hope for continuous co-operation in future too in our common goal for conservation.
Manshanta Ghimire, President
