The Sálim Ali Centre for Ornithology and Natural History (SACON) came into being in 1990, at the beginning of the decade that set the twin issues of conservation of biodiversity and its sustainable use in the agenda for global action. The richness of India’s biodiversity and its rapid erosion in the last few decades need no telling. Most ecosystems have been degraded, fragmented and depleted to an extent that their conservation requires intense and informed management.
