Naturalists seek aviary in Kalatop-Khajjiar habitat

Of late nature lovers of this region have reiterated their long-pending demand of setting up an aviary house for the breeding of pheasants in the vicinity of the Kalatop-Khajjiar wildlife sanctuary or the wooded Sahoo valley in the district.

These suburbs are ideally suited for the breeding and restocking of western tragopan in the wild. For this, steps should be taken to create a buffer zone during the breeding season by proper watch wards etc.

With this, the population of the western tragopan will multiply manifold.

The creation of such an aviary house in the district will also go a long way in attracting tourists from home and abroad, says Navneet Chowfla, a naturalist of Chamba.
