A bird-loving young man has declared his own home as a bird sanctuary in Satkhira.
The announcement was made at 10am on Thursday morning by Satkhira sadar upazila Chairman Asaduzzaman Babu.
Initiator Asaduzzaman Sardar said he wanted to create a safe space for birds to roam free without fear of being killed or captured.
The initiative was made possible with the support of Bangladesh Resource Centre for Indigenous Knowledge (Barcik) and an education, culture and diversity protection team. They put pottery in the branches of the trees as part of the initiative.
Barcik organizer Pavel Partho, and General Secretary Nahid Hasan were present during the event.
Researcher and writer Pavel Partho said: “We have to ensure the survival of birds in order to ensure a proper ecosystem. This is a great initiative.”
Asaduzzaman Babu said, “This will encourage people to appreciate birds and raise awareness. These kinds of initiatives should be taken often.”
