Brief  Introduction

“Vivid descriptions of birds in J. Krishnamurti's writings, birdbaths on the campus and rare books on ornithology all attest to a long tradition of bird studies at Rishi Valley. Over the years, as the green cover in the valley spread, the number of birds grew; the latest count reveals that there are now about 200 migrant and resident bird species. In July 1991, Rishi Valley was declared a Bird Preserve and, in 1999 an Institute of Bird Studies and Natural History was established at Rishi Valley. The Institute is devoted to protecting birds, to preserving bio-diversity and educating students and the public on environmental issues.”

Members of the Adyar Nature & Environment Centre look forward to learning from the experience of the dedicated Rishi Valley faculty in Nature Preservation activities!
