Bird monitoring in India


29 – 30 April 2022


About the symposium

Long term studies are crucial to understanding the status of bird species and populations. In India, several organizations, individual researchers and citizen scientists have been working on systematic record-keeping and monitoring in different parts of the country. This symposium is a yearly event to bring together people involved in such efforts. It aims to bring researchers, citizen scientists and others together to facilitate conversations about bird monitoring.
