WHY A BIRD SANCTUARY?
|When the French tested their nuclear bombs in the Pacific, the island nearest to Ground Zero became a howling wilderness where not even a blade of grass was left alive. Environmental scientists declared the island would remain dead for at least a century. But just three years after the nuclear blasts were stopped due to the efforts of Greenpeace, an international non-government (NGO) organization against the proliferation of nuclear weapons, the island was again lush with vegetation. How did this marvel happen? Birds flying over the island dropped their own bombs – their dung. The radiation has been dissipated and washed away by storm winds and rainfall, and the seeds carried and fertilized by the bird droppings began to sprout. This underlines the role birds play in our eco-system. They are the number one agents of reforestation.|
