Pararthya is working closely with the conservation of Okhla Bird Sanctuary, a wetland heaven for over 300 bird species. It is one of the 466 IBAs (Important Bird Areas) in India. But now, there has been an observant decrease in population of migratory birds due to increase in air, noise and water pollution in the Yamuna River, further shrinking the habitat of marshlands and water areas.

Introducing Battery Carts in sanctuary
Green belt formation
Development of nesting and roosting sites by habitat management
Fixation of boundary to prevent illicit entry of cattle and stray dogs
Installation of awareness sign boards inside and outside the sanctuary
Provide skill development training to villagers and provide them job opportunity
