Ri Bhoi:

The Tyrso Valley Wildlife Protection Society (TVWPS) in collaboration with other local groups will organise the Amur Falcon Festival on November 14 and 15 at Tyrso village, Ri Bhoi district. The festival will celebrate the migration of countless Amur Falcon birds to the area each year.

In a statement issued by the secretary of TVWPS, Alos Nongpoh emphasised the festival’s purpose and its aim to preserve the environment, including animals, birds, and fish. He urged the public to refrain from harming these temporary visitors, highlighting the success of community efforts since 2015, ensuring the safety of the Amur Falcon birds in the Tyrso and Umru area.

Acknowledging the region’s growing renown due to the bird’s arrival, Alos expressed the desire for the area to be recognised as a tourism spot and included in the state’s tourism map. He revealed that the TVWPS group seeks to elevate the Amur Falcon Festival to the status of a state festival, emphasising the need for the government to regulate and manage the increasing influx of tourists drawn to witness the spectacle.

Speaking on the benefits brought by the birds, he also highlighted their significant contribution to local agriculture by consuming winged termites and crop-damaging insects. He warned against harming the birds, stating that those violating this commitment would face legal consequences as per village laws and Wildlife Department regulations.

The Tyrso Valley Wildlife Protection Society extends an invitation to the public to attend the festival and witness firsthand the remarkable presence of these migratory birds in the area.
