Tata Steel Mining Organises Bird-Watching Session, Distributes Nests At Odisha’s Sukinda
Sukinda: Tata Steel Mining Ltd (TSML) organised a bird-watching session at its Sukinda Chromite Mine campus here on Friday as part of its commitment to sustainable development and environmental conservation.
The event, aimed at promoting biodiversity conservation and creating environmental awareness, brought together a diverse group of nature enthusiasts, conservationists and local stakeholders to explore the rich avian biodiversity surrounding the Sukinda Chromite Mine.
The session started early in the morning in lush surroundings of the campus, offering an opportunity for participants to observe the behaviour and habitat of sparrows first-hand.
Dr Justus Joshua, senior scientist and biodiversity expert, guided the event, providing valuable insights into the life cycle, nesting habits and migration patterns of the birds.
“We are delighted to have organised this bird-watching session, as it allows us to appreciate the incredible biodiversity that surrounds us. The programme aligns with our commitment to environmental sustainability. By organising this event, we aim to raise awareness among the communities about protection of birds and encourage all to take small but meaningful steps towards their conservation,” said Pankaj Satija, Managing Director, Tata Steel Mining.
The company distributed specially-designed artificial nests to the participants to promote installation of these nests in homes, offices and public spaces to create a conducive environment for birds to thrive and multiply.
TSML had earlier launched the ‘Love Sparrows’ programme to highlight the importance of sparrows in maintaining ecological balance and alarming decline in their population.
TSML has also installed artificial nests in the mine campus to contribute to protection and conservation of sparrows in the region.
