The Amur Falcon (Falco amurensis) is a species of falcon that breeds in southeast Russia and northeastern China and migrates to southern Africa for the non-breeding season. They have also been observed in the Indian states of Nagaland and Maharashtra during their annual migration.
In Nagaland, the Amur falcon has become a symbol of conservation and ecotourism. The state has a large number of birds that pass through during their annual migration, and in recent years, there have been efforts to protect the birds and their habitats while also promoting ecotourism. In the Doyang area of Nagaland, thousands of Amur falcons congregate during their annual migration and this phenomenon has attracted birdwatchers and ornithologists from around the world.
Unfortunately, during their migration, they were hunted by the locals for their meat, it caused a significant decline in population and also hurt the ecotourism potential. To help protect these birds and promote ecotourism, local communities and conservation groups have come together to create a conservation program to protect the birds and promote ecotourism in the area. They have educated the locals about the importance of protecting the birds, and also set up ecotourism activities such as bird-watching tours and nature camps to help raise awareness and promote conservation.
The efforts seem to be working, as the population of Amur falcons in Nagaland appears to be stable, and ecotourism has also become an important source of income for local communities.
Please be aware hunting and eating wildlife is illegal in India, it also has a negative impact on the population of any species, it can cause an imbalance in the ecosystem, and also have a potential spread of diseases.
