ITINERARY (IN SHORT)
Overnight at a Wokha homestay.
[Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner]
The Amur falcon is a fascinating bird. It is only the size of a pigeon, but it has one of the longest migratory paths in the bird kingdom, travelling up to 22,000 km in a year. It also survives wholly on insects incuding termites, making it a very useful bird to have around for farmers.
It is also one of the most successful conservation stories of recent times. Till a few years back villagers in Nagaland have been hunting or rather massacring the birds for their meat. Green groups estimate that at least 120,000 birds were killed every year.
Alarmed by these shocking numbers local conservation agencies of Nagaland, the church and the villages of Pangti, Ashaa and Sungro, stepped in and launched a conservation & patrolling programme called ‘Friends of the Amur Falcon’. This entire effort has been led by a fiestyjournalist-turned-conservationist Bano Haralu.
Today hunting the Amur Falcon is a rare occurance. And theWokha district of nagaland has become the Falcon capital of the World. This 3N/4D trip will give you a breath-taking experience of this amazing community led conservation story from Nagaland.
