Into the Wild - Updates from May

As we stepped into May with World Migratory Bird Day, the month marked the beginning of a pivotal time for many birds, as they embark thousands of kilometres across continents. These arduous journeys are a testament to the importance of protected habitats, that act as vital sanctuaries for these birds to survive.

May was also a special month for us, as we celebrated the International Day for Biological Diversity. The month ended with our third annual conservation offsite in H.D. Kote, that saw conservation teams from the Eastern and Western Ghats come together to celebrate 40 years of CWS. We are excited to see what lies in store for us over the coming months!
