3 New Places in Goa Known as Biodiversity Hub

BirdLife International, a conservation organisation, has recognised three new places in Goa as hub for protection. These places have been added to their list of “Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas”.

The inclusion of these ecological hubs in a new book come after systematic data collection by the Goa Bird Conservation Network (GBCN).  The book is authored by noted ornithologist Asad Rahmani, along with two other co-authors, and is published by the Bombay Natural History Society. Now, 7 areas in Goa have been designate as important biodiversity areas by BirdLife. GBCN president Parag Rangnekar said Goa earlier had only 4 recognised biodiversity places: Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary and Mollem National Park, Carambolim Wetlands, Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary and Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary. The newly included places in the list list are Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary, Navelim Wetlands and Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary. The extent of Carambolim Wetland has been increased to include the fragile ecosystem of Dhado.
