NDI is offering a unique course in bird watching at its Satyanarayan Shepherd’s Lodge (Rajaji National Park) Rajaji Tiger Reserve is rich in birdlife and the dense forests surrounding the campuses are ideal for birding.

The course aims at orienting the youth towards ornithology by systematically introducing the art of observing birds in their natural habitat.
