Lesser Adjutant Storks are Declining in Nepal

Lesser Adjutant Storks of Nepal are declining due to haphazard Land Plotting, Unplanned Urbanization, cutting down of tree species, habitat destruction, etc.
This story is based on a Field Visit to Urlabari Municipality of Province 1 of Nepal. A previous study showed that there used to be 15 colonies but now there are only colonies left in my visit.
I cross-checked the identification done by Dr. Hem bahadur Katwal, he also verify that the current colony number is 2 in this region.
I write the status of these species in Urlabari and acrosss  the country based on previous research studies and recent papers on this farmland bird.
My news report on this species is published in Kantipur Online on 30th October 2022.
