Mouchumi Gogoi

Biodiversity pro v ides material and nonmaterial wealth in the form of food, fiber, medicine, happiness, peace, and so on for human communities. Loss of biodiversity means jeopardize of prospect and progress of human society. Assam is a part of global biodiversity hotspots, rich with innumerable biotic diversity. Panidihing (270 4.5/ N to 270 10/ N latitudes and 940 25/ E to 940 40/ E longitudes) - a unique and important bird area is a Protected Area (PA) situated in Sibsagar district of Assam. The Bird Sanctuary (BS) was constituted with a total area of 33.93 sq. km. The location of the sanctuary is 19 km northeast of the Sibsagar town. The National Highway-37 is running just 9km south of Panidihing. And the nearest airport Rowriah (Jorhat) is about 75 km towards east. It is surrounded east, north and south by peopled villages. The Brahmaputra River flows in the north-western side of the PA. On the other hand river Dishang flows in the southern part of the PA. Panidihing Bird Sanctuary established on 10th August, 1999 by a State Government Notification. The sanctuary is well known for many bird species which are very endangered and enlisted in the threatened species list. It is important to note that this bird sanctuary has also been revealing ecological and geotourism value. But it is observed that this biologically rich sanctuary has lost its earlier status of ecological and geotourism significance in recent years due to misuse and unwise use of its biodiversity.
