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.
