Uttarayan Save Birds Campaign (USBC) is organized every year in Ahmedabad by Jivdaya Charitable Trust during the Kite-flying festival (Uttarayan) as an effort to save the injured birds from certain death and giving them a survival chance.
Even though our official USBC 2018 campaign date was 13th to 16th January 2018, we started receiving birds injured by manja used in kite fighting (Uttarayan) from mid-December onward.
We received a total of 1107 birds during the campaign;
137 birds on 13th Jan,
235 birds on 14th Jan,
432 birds on 15th Jan,
303 birds on 16th Jan.
The total number of injured birds received from the 01st of Jan to 18th Jan 2018 however is 2080 birds of 39 species. Sadly, this will continue to go on until end of February.
We were able to save 1752 birds, of which 980 birds were released while 772 birds are still under treatment.
