Stop The Slaughter Of Amur Falcons

Amur Falcons migrate every year from Siberia and northern China, where they breed, to Somalia, Kenya and South Africa, where they over winter. En route these falcons arrive in northeast India,where tens of thousands of them are brutally massacred in the remote state of Nagaland.

Conservation India estimates that every day during the peak migration between 12,000 and 14,000 birds are hunted for consumption and commercial sale. That means that every year between 120,000 and 140,000 birds are being murdered in Nagaland.

Your Honor,

India is a signatory to the Convention of Migratory Species. This means your country has a duty under international law to ensure this killing is halted immediately.


Please take action to ensure that the killing of these Amur Falcons is halted immediately. Thank you so much.
