THREATS AND CONSERVATION ISSUES
Sustainable aquaculture cuould not be enforced
LOSS OF CATCHMENT AREA: PERSISTING
Inflow feeder channels are blocked or choked due to expansion of city
d to growth of tropical secondary scrub/ Dry deciduous forest attracting more arboreal birds, but at the same time
curtailed activity of the ground birds.
Could not be stopped completely
TOURISM & DISTURBANCE TO BIRDS: PERSISTING
Increased human activity is disturbance
FIRE WOOD COLLECTION: PERSISTING
Fencing and policing has reduced the problem but not completely.
LIVE STOCK GRAZING: CLEARED
Live stock population has reduced drastically as surrounding villages are getting converted into city. Lake can support the present livestock.
ENCROACHMENT BY GRASS (FODDER) CULTIVATORS:
Fencing and monitoring has reduced the problem drastically
CLEARING HERBS & SHRUBS REGULARLY:
In order to keep neat and tidy on public demand, shrubs and herbs are cleared regularly. Thus, butterflies and warblers are deprived of their foraging ground.
CONVERSION OF AGRICULTURAL LAND INTO RESIDENTIAL AREA:
Lush green environ has given way to expanding city, thus loosing many arboreal and terrestrial birds.
