On April 1st, 2024, we conducted a Certificate Distribution Program for the Ujani Waterbird Census, a Citizen Science Program held on March 3rd, 2024. The Census was conducted in 13 different locations, in collaboration with Solapur Forest Division. 
The census was a part of the annual Asian Waterbird Census (AWC), which in turn contributes to the International Waterbird Census (IWC) amplifying its impact on global conservation efforts.

Throughout the event, we collectively documented 137 species, with more than 20,000 birds recorded. For the census more than 60 passionate birders had participated for the Census from Pune, Mumbai and Solapur. This effort have marked a significant contribution towards understanding and conserving the avian diversity of the Ujani Reservoir.

The Program was started with the brief introduction about the Ujani Project and followed by the Ujani Waterbird Census 2024 by Director Mr. Jayant Kulkarni.

After briefing about the project Mr. Jayant Kulkarni handed over the report of Ujani Waterbird Census 2024 to Cheif Conservation of Forest, Mr. Praveen  N. R and Deputy Conservation of Forest, Mr. Patil Dhairyashil. The distribution of certificates took place at the Amphitheatre of the Forest Department in Van Udyan Bhamburda. Certificates were handed out by Chief Conservator of Forest, Mr. Praveen N.R., and Deputy Conservator of Forest, Mr. Patil Dhairyashil.
We express our gratitude to Maharashtra Forest Department and all the participants for their valuable contributions, which have made this census a highly fruitful event.
