wake up to nature by WWF,Sikkim

wake up to nature by WWF,Sikkim


Last week i attended the nature camp organised by WWF in collaboration with CMD(centre for mountain dynamic)at kaliampong from 7th-8th of feb.2013.This was the first time that i  with have attended such camp and it was wonderful experience and it definately change our way of seeing thing and method of teaching.
After three hour journey from Gangtok to kaliampong we were really exhausted and once we reached there we were really surprised to see the place that we were going to spend.The place is 15 minute walk from nearest road and the venue is peaceful and one can hear different sound of birds,perfect for birders.First we had a introduction session and the Mr.Partho gave presentation on bird watching.
On second day birds call from nearby place wake up all the bird watcher and we gather there in the hall and then Mr. Basant and Mr.Partho separated two team of bird watcher . One group headed by Mr.Basant went toward uphill and another group  headed by Mr. Partho went toward downhill.I was with first group and after covering 15 minute radius, we sighted almost 21 birds like great barbet ,green billed mahkola,white creasted laughing thrush,blue throated barbet,asian barred owlet,jungle babbler,lessewr neckleced laughing thrush,oriental white eye,grey headed canary flycather,black creasted bulbul,rofous bellied niltava and many more.After coming from field we had a breakfast then birders helped our team leader to make common check list and it was 23 birds were sighted within 15 minute radius of CMD.The game about nature was played before lunch and after that we again went for butterflly watching in nearby place though we didn't find much birds as compared to birds but we enjoyed a lot.At last we had a session on zero waste management by Miss lha tsheden and it was life changing experience because we never thought that waste can be change into useful things.
There we were short of time and we even could thank WWF member  properly but through blog i would like to thank on behalf of my friends who attended that camp,Thank you very much.
