Ecological park of Mathura Refinery became hub of migratory birds this season

The ecological park of Mathura Refinery has attracted a large number of migratory birds, including northern shoveler and northern pintail, this season. The 4.5-acre ecological park was developed in phases, soon after the commissioning of Mathura Refinery to maintain a green ambience, according to L W Khongwir, Executive Director of Mathura Refinery, Uttar Pradesh.

"The environment of the ecological park must be conducive for winged visitors," A V Mandal, Acting Director, Central Avian Research Institute in Bareli, said. Five large ponds and their surroundings in the park have become natural habitat of black-headed ibis and painted stork, and attracted migratory birds such as northern shoveler and northern pintail.

Khongwir said the refinery could maintain a clean environment through mechanical permutation and combination following concerns over pollution from the refinery causing the white marble of the Taj Mahal to yellow.
