Problem


Thousands of peacocks across India are being discovered dead under mysterious conditions. There is an increase in peacock feather selling. This beautiful nature's creation is facing deadly fate for its feathers and meat. The bird is large enough and visible to become an easy target. 

This nature's marvel, highly celebrated bird in our culture, the national and magnificent bird is in a desperate and precarious condition for survival.

If no action is taken, Indian Peacock or Indian Peafowl will become extinct in the wild in a very short time !!
