- Adjutant Stork - Leptoptilos javanicus
They build their nests high on the limbs of the majestic silk cotton tree. But in recent years, a growing number of hatchlings have been falling out of the nests. In Assam, people are using nets tried around tree trunks to save the babies. There are only about 1,000 greater adjutant storks left in the world, and about 80 percent of them are in the Indian state of Assam. Greater adjutant storks are a highly endangered species that requires complete protection wherever it occurs, in breeding and non-breeding periods.
