High-tech move to save Sri Maha Bodhi from parrots (Pics)

A new technological initiative has been taken yesterday (05) to save the sacred Sri Maha Bodhi and surrounding Bo trees from flocks of parrots that are continuously trying to build nests in tree hollows, reports say.

The technical equipment was imported by Mr. Ravindra Meegamarachchi. Ultrasonic technology and flashing lights have been used for this purpose. Incoming birds are detected through motion detectors which trigger the equipment.

It is reported that Mr. Meegamarachchi has had lengthy discussions with the production company to obtain the equipment.

It is reported that this technology, which is made according to international quality standards, will not harm neither the trees nor the animals.

Environment experts believe the large number of birds in the area is a result of some pilgrims releasing captured Munia birds and parrots as a meritorious act to fulfil a part of their religious pledges.
