Yamuna bio diversity park: A small success story

The Yamuna Biodiversity Park is a "joint collaboration project" of the Delhi Development Authority and the Centre for Environmental Management of Degraded Ecosystems, University of Delhi. Their mission is "to serve as a repository and heritage of biodiversity of Yamuna river basin with ecological, cultural and educational benefits to the urban society and having conservation values".

This water body is just one part of a larger, more ambitious game plan as outlined in the list of objectives of the park. But that they've gone from wasteland to water-body and zero to over 5000 ducks in four years is testimony to what can be achieved if you put your mind to it.
