Khulna: Earthen pitchers on trees are being used as to make safe habitat for native species of birds at different places including ‘Jatisangha Shishu Park’ and ‘Zero Point’ area in the city, reports BSS. 

Nowadays, the sight of birds returning to nests at nightfall is hardly seen in the city area. The native variety birds are almost on the verge of extinction due to lack of safe habitat.

Khulna AB Culture Bird Breeders Society (KABBS) has taken a special initiative to protect birds’ habitat by hanging earthen pitchers on trees in the ‘Jatisangha Shishu Park’ and other places in the city.

The AB Culture Bird Breeders Society has started the initiatives since March 2018 in the city, said Shabbir Ahmed Munna, President of the KABBS to BSS today.

These initiatives is expected to continue in the city and district and other districts adjacent to Khulna until native birds start finding safe habitats, he said.

Earlier, KABBS hanged around 200 earthen pitchers on mango, mehogoni, shrish, kadom, palash and other trees.

Munna, also the owner of Focus Nursery and Horticulture Farm and ex-general secretary of Khulna Nursery Owners Association said his love for the birds since childhood prompted him to take this initiative.
