Abstract

Indian Sarus Crane, Grus antigone antigone (Linnaeus, 1758) is the largest of the crane species found in India. As such the authors have initiated a public awareness campaign since 2011 to save and conserve this species from becoming extinct. The present study concerns the survey of Indian Sarus Crane in and around Alwara lake of District Kaushambi (U.P.) from 2011 to 2014 along with awareness programme. The awareness programme was carried out with the help of local people residing around the lake and district authorities. It helped to restore its exploited habitat and conserve the said species. The successful awareness programme tends this vulnerable species towards an increasing trend in and around the said perennial wetland. As a result, the habitat concerned has been proved safer for sarus crane population growth due to reduction in anthropogenic activities.
