Dhaandhoo school & Sea Explorers Associates Pvt Ltd has made a bird nesting platform in the lagoon of Dhaandhoo 4 years 1 month 3 weeks ago | 0 comment(s) The idea is to mimic a small island/sandbank which will serve as an alternative roosting site for seabirds. Hopefully this will give another chance to the seabirds, whose numbers are declining due to habitat destruction. Their aim is not only to provide a nesting site for seabirds but to also raise awareness among communities about the importance of conservation.
Students from grades 8, 9 and 10 of Dhaandhoo School will be monitoring the platform weekly for bird activity. They will be moving to and from the platform on the kayaks that were handed over to the school.
What's next is to wait and watch if the birds do lay eggs on the platform.
