Creating an avian habitat in and around an urban tank is a challenge. Nevertheless, since 2010 this is what PNLIT has been striving to do while overcoming man-made impediments. It began with stopping sewage inflow, feeding the lake with treated water and finding ways to purify it further; planting dead perches and live plants. Documenting the outcomes, the PNLIT journey continues at Puttenahalli Puttakere.
