The number of butterflies is being counted this year as it is every year at the Biodiversity Park in Delhi. As part of the Butterfly Assessment Week, studies will be conducted in all parks, including butterfly counting, from October 25-30. Through this medium, the use of measuring Delhi pollution level is also used.
Fayaz Khudsar, in-charge of the biodiversity park, said the creatures that live in the biodiversity park after Yamuna, Aravalli, Kalindi, Tilpat Valley, Neela House and Tughlaq will be counted. Butterflies also contribute to the environment. They are also an indicator of air pollution. Ordinary people will also become partners in this program. The counting will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Biodiversity park scientist Dr Mohammad Faisal said they would study all the plants and animals in the park after counting the butterflies. This study will also help in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal. It is an indirect method of measuring the level of pollution in Delhi.
