Sarus Conservation Society

During its previous regime, the Government headed by samajwadi party had been instrumental in the creation of Sarus Protection Society with the core objective of study, ecology and support to activities that would ensure survival of the Sarus in perpetuity. During the last two year a large number of activities have been taken up to further the cause of Sarus Conservation in Uttar Pradesh. Special projects have been funded by the society for improving the habitat in favor of Sarus and in promoting Sarus Conservation consciousness across the state.

To measure the effectiveness of the efforts been made, Sarus census has been made biannual. According to the census done in 2013, the sarus number have gone upto almost 12000 in the state.

The Sarus Protection Society is supporting extensive educational programs in all the areas of U.P. which are rich in wetlands.
