Like every year, the annual ritual for birders, Asian Waterbird census (AWC) is underway across the country since 4th January, 2020, raising awareness about waterbirds amongst the masses. Attracting amateurs and the seasoned ornithologists alike, this longest running citizen science initiative, coordinated by Wetlands International South Asia and Bombay Natural History Society, systematically counts and monitors waterbirds along with assessing condition of wetlands, covering hundreds of sites. With biodiversity at the core of global attention, we are looking forward to completion of this exercise to understand latest trends for initiating informed decisions and actions.
