Where have all the sparrows gone?

What's your story?

About this project

Sparrows are disappearing all over the world. But do we know why? By gathering images, memories and stories of sparrows, students explore the place of the sparrow in their community. They can share their research with the world, to build a rich global narrative that explores the complexities of climate, ecology and interconnectedness.

The project was inspired by a student at Agastya, and the story of The Last Sparrow, written in Telugu by dr Pavineni Sriva Sankar.
