Conservation Efforts at Lake Nangal (Punjab): A study tour

Nangal Lake in Punjab

The Nangal Lake was formed after the construction of Bhakra Nangal Dam and is situated in the foothills fo the shivalik ranges.  Its pristine blue/green waters and wetlands play host to a large number of migratory birds from Nov – march.

In our series of tours:  “Migratory Birds and Conservation Efforts across India”  One Earth Foundation team visited the area and learnt about the initiatives towards the conservation of wetlands and migratory bird habitat.  Our special thanks goes to Mr. Prabhat Bhatti who has spearheaded the movement in the region to create awareness about migratory birds and conservation of the wetlands.
