The Kolleru Lake a repository of avifauna was almost lost once earlier when the Grey Pelican which was the seen as the ecological mascot of the lake went in search of “greener pastures”. Kolleru is located between Krishna and Godavari deltas.

Now this habitat of thousands of birds seems to be under threat for the second time with the State government proposing diversion of water from feeder rivulets and drains for irrigation. The Central government is even examining a proposal to reduce the size of the Wildlife sanctuary.

It was declared a wildlife sanctuary and a Ramsar Site. It is one of the largest fresh water lakes in the country.

Thousands of Pelicans and Painted Stork visit the lake in the winter and return to their homeland, Siberia, in the summer.

Sambar Lake of Rajasthan is the largest inland salt water lake in India.
