Manja Menace: Nagpurians open helplines to rescue injured birds ahead of Makar Sankranti

Nagpur: As we all know Makar Sankranti Kite festival is round the corner and due to kite flying and the use of Chinese string(Manja) and glass-coated string(Manja) hundreds of birds get injured every year, some get help and are saved but all are not that lucky and die in pain.

Likewise every year Uttarayan request their members from Nagpur to volunteer for the rescue of birds found or trapped in kite string (Manja) anywhere in and around Nagpur. These birds will be taken to the Forest Department’s Transit Treatment Center at Seminary Hills for treatment and later on will be released when found fit to fly.

Anyone who finds any bird injured or trapped in the manja can volunteer or inform here:
