One thought on “The number of Siberian migratory birds reduce

  1. few years ago 670 species more than 12 million migrated birds came in pakistan to different province and wetlands in winter season but last three years reported that the number of migrated birds are reduced the reason is the route of migrated birds is afghanistan and this route is dangerous for birds because of war and birds change their route to iran and india,due to climate change in the wetland of pakistanshortage of water and seafood therefore migrated bird change their route one more reason is that due to climate change the summer season come early and when the summer start in pakistan at that time the winter season is not ending at siberia which are not suited for these birds that’s why they go that places where summer does not start early sindh wild life allocated the fund for the betterment of wetlands,hope that the condition would be better in future
