Great Indian Bustard Extinct

 


Great Indian Bustard, the state bird  of Rajastahn, locally called Godawan is almost extinct. A 2-day drive by state officials to look for Godawan birds in Ajmer met with no success.

Back in the 1950s, more than 6000 Godawans were there in the state, but the figure gradually came down to 35 in 1980s and continues to be comparatively low.
