The Amur Falcon Massacre in Nagaland

Amur Falcons (a species known for its long distance migration) pass through India every year on their way from Siberia to Africa. Everyday, these beautiful birds of prey are being hunted in tens of thousands in Nagaland, India. The birds are trapped in nets and are later skinned and smoked, and sold locally for consumption. 
Conservation India has not only documented this shocking event, but has also ensured immediate action by the state authorities. Watch this alarming coverage by Shashank Dalvi and Ramki Sreenivasan here- http://www.conservationindia.org/campaigns/amur-massacre
