When it comes to planting a tree, the more the merrier! The more Only Earth you order, the more trees we plant.
We are committed to planting 100,000 Mangrove trees in the span of five years. Mangroves plants are highly productive and it is estimated that the average annual carbon sequestration rate of mangrove ecosystems averages between 6 and 8 Mg CO2 e/ha (tons of CO2 equivalent per hectare).
The Alexandrine Parakeet lives in forests, woodlands, agricultural lands and mangrove forests. They feed on seeds, fruits and nuts. The Alexandrine Parakeet is listed as near threatened because of the steep population decline in their native range due to habitat loss, persecution and excessive capture to meet the demands of the illegal wildlife trade.
On February, 26 baby Alexandrine Parakeets were rescued by the Bannerghatta Police Department and brought to the centre. After examination, they were divided into batches based on size.
Vaccinations were completed in one month and as the temperature rose, they were all shifted to larger aviaries with platforms and branches that served as natural perches. A water bath was placed inside the enclosure for hydration. Here they got more space to move, exercise wings, practice flight, bathe in the water bath, groom themselves and bask in the spring sunlight. At night when temperature dropped, they would all huddle together to keep warm.
In 6 months they should be ready to go back to the wild to live a life of complete freedom with no dependence on humans.
