Public Lecture On “Disappearing Sparrows?”

Source: Toxics Link, Date: May , 2012

The common sparrow, which was ubiquitously seen in our cities, is now increasingly rare. One could not open a door leading to a garden without a sparrow instantly flying into the room. Alongside, over the years, the absence of common bird species has become increasingly noticeable. Does the 'loss' of this and other birds we once took for granted, a sign of other changes in our environment? Toxics Link in its endeavor to address the issues surrounding the  decline in the population of the sparrows and contemplate the reasons behind the decline; organized a public lecture on ‘Disappearing Sparrows’ in collaboration with Indian International Center, New  Delhi on May 8th 2012.
