The Pheasants of the World – And their Conservation

An all new book on pheasants is going to be out in a few months time.The book, titled 'Conserving Asia's Wildlife Treasure: The Pheasants', is compiled by Anita Chauhan, a postgraduate from the University of Delhi.

Many of the species in this particular Family of birds (Phasianidae) are threatened with extinction in their native habitat due to deforestation and hunting. This book aims to improve awareness among people about the pheasants, to help with the conservation of these species.

The book contains information on the world’s pheasant species in a concise form that will appeal to people from all backgrounds and ages. This introductory book will particularly appeal to college level students of science.

A portion of the earnings from the sale of the book will be donated to conservation projects for pheasants.
