Amur Falcons Fly Safe over Nagaland



Here is an illustration I drew for Conservation India to mark the success of the Amur Falcon. This has probably been one of the biggest recent conservation successes in India, where Conservation India led by Ramki Sreenivasan, and Shashank Dalvi documented the slaughter of the migrating Amur Falcons in Nagaland, spread tremendous awareness about the issue through online portals, involved readers and decision makers and mobilized the masses in the state to achieve a result so significant, that not a single killing was reported this year! A huge round of applause for CI and the communities who made the safe passage of falcons over Nagaland happen!

Here's teh link to the report on CI- http://www.conservationindia.org/campaigns/amur-massacre

And this is the cartoon I drew last year on this issue, when the massacre was at its peak- http://www.greenhumour.com/2012/11/never-land-in-nagaland.html
