Tata Steel Mining launches Sparrow Conservation initiative “Love Sparrow” in Sukinda

40 nest boxes distributed among volunteers

Sukinda: To spread message on enhancing the population of house sparrows whose number are said to be fluctuating in recent times, Tata Steel Mining Limited (TSML) has started a conservation drive ’Love Sparrow’ at its Sukinda Chromite Mine located in Jajpur district, Odisha.

Artificial nest boxes, prepared based on scientific design and field data, were distributed to 40 volunteers who came forward to contribute for sparrow conservation. The idea behind the initiative is to help the birds to build more nests in the boxes while drawing public attention towards conservation of the species.

Dr Randal D. Glaholt, international biodiversity expert, formally launched this initiative along with Mr Pankaj Kumar Satija, Managing Director, Tata Steel Mining Limited. The event was also graced by Ms Gayatri Devi, Wildlife and Ecology Research Biologist and Mr Sushant Kumar Mishra, Senior General Manager, TSML.
