In this programme we will endeavor to show you couple of species which are on brink of extinction. The Great Indian Bustard which was commonly seen in the dry plains few decades back, but due to loss of habitat resulting from more agriculture, and urbanisation these birds today are less then 250 in numbers in the wild. Once tipped to be the national bird of India, but was not to be as fear of it being misspelt arose in the minds of decision makers. This Ostrich like bird stands tall at about 4 feet and is amongst the heaviest flying birds in the world. We will try and see this bird in the Dessert National Park in Rajasthan. Similarly Gharials have lost over 90% of their habitat to dams, canals, and barrages, thus reducing the riverine banks their home.
