A two-member team from the BirdLife International (BI), the agency which assesses the conservation status of birds worldwide, visited Kole wetlands in Thrissur on Wednesday. The team consisting of Ian Barber, Partner Development Officer, Asia, and Helen Byron, Senior International Casework officer of the Royal Society for Protection of Birds reached the Periyar Tiger Reserve on Thursday.

Kerala has 24 IBAs to its credit against the 466 in the country. Most of the bird areas of Kerala are either in protected areas or Reserve Forests, which are managed by the State Forest Department.An IBA, according to BirdLife International, “is an internationally agreed priority for conservation action.” They are “key sites for conservation – small enough to be conserved in their entirety and often already part of a protected-area network.”
