Birds of the Deccan Plateau
Please submit pictures of birds in the wild, not birds in the zoo or domesticated birds. I prefer to map the Deccan Plateau since I need to print out the pictures for our local government school children, who no access to this information. I work with a private school which has programmes to help improve teaching and learning in these poor government schools in rural areas. Sign in to join mission
Often our state curriculum and schools ignore the nature around the schools. They fail to inculcate respect for our natural surroundings. Few students can name the birds they see everyday in their natural habitat. To correct this imbalance, it is necessary to identify the rich diversity of our surroundings. I am starting with birds since our feathered friends are the best ambassadors of nature to our villages and neighborhoods. I work at a private international school and oversee programmes that support poor rural government schools, that often have only one teacher, two to three classrooms, with no grounds for sports and no teaching materials. It is my personal mission to create teaching materials that highlight our natural wealth.
