CHARIKAR (Pajhwok): Hundreds of hunted birds were released back into their natural habitat in central Parwan province, the Environment Protection Department said on Monday.

Environment Protection Director Hafizullah Mansour said officials released about 880 birds of various species as eagle, soori, chamchaq, gulsar and daaghsar.

A total of 880 birds were freed in Pul-i-Alam area of Charikar city, Sayadan Markaz, Sayed Khel and Bagram districts of the province.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has banned hunting of birds and wild animals, said Mansour, who added such birds after being captured were illegally sold in markets.

“Earlier, we warned hunters and took commitment from them, but some disobeyed and we destroyed their hunting tools,” Mansour explained.

He said they had informed people about the ban on hunting of birds and given information about the importance of environmental protection.
