The Birdwatchers’ Cell provides a platform for] budding environmentalists and researchers to come together, participate in various activities and share their knowledge with each other. It benefits the society by making people aware about the need of saving birds for the sake of our survival since they are one of the most vital pillars of our ecosystem. The cell has also documented the wide array of birds found in Raniganj and the surrounding industrial belt, which serves as a milestone in shedding light in this domain of knowledge.
