Jaipur, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Wednesday said the death of birds at Sambhar Lake is “very worrying”.
In his tweet, Gehlot said, “State govt has taken all necessary steps to first find out what is causing the loss of avian lives and also to take immediate steps to prevent deaths during this migratory season. Protecting flora and fauna remains one of our top priorities.”
“The CCF (Chief Conservator of Forest) as well as several teams of Animal Husbandry Department are at Sambhar Lake. Both CWLW (Chief Wild Life Warden) and CCF are monitoring the situation. Water samples have been taken and sent for testing. Carcasses are sent to Bhopal for testing for bird flu. Toxicologists have also been called from WWI and SARCON, Coimbatore.”

Officials are also investigating whether it has been caused by water contamination or algae poisoning...

The figure was higher as compared to previous months.
Poachers have also been taking advantage of the sudden drop in the number of tourists as the global pandemic has brought the industry, among the top three foreign exchange generators for the country, to a standstill.
