Two youths from Assam’s Dhemaji save injured barn owl

We need to encourage these budding youths for their passion and affection for nature, said COO of Aaranyak, a wildlife NGO.

GUWAHATI:

Showing exemplary passion and love for the wildlife, two youths from Assam’s Dhemaji district, on February 1, saved the life of an injured barn owl in their neighbourhood.

Owing to their lack of experience, both Bidyut Bikash Dutta and Nillyot Jyoti Dutta contacted Bibhab Kumar Talukdar, the secretary-general and CEO of Aaranyak, a wildlife NGO based in Assam, describing the condition of the owl and sought advice on the next course of action.

Talukdar guided him on how to take care of the injured bird, stating that it was to be taken to a veterinary hospital the next day. Both youths followed his advice and after treatment, handed it over to the forest office for rehabilitation.

“We need to encourage these budding youths for their passion and affection for nature, which goes a long way towards safeguarding our wildlife. They expected nothing out of it and only wanted to ensure the safety of the injured barn own. Such efforts are to be encouraged,” said Talukdar.
