Restoring a lake, a lifeline and hopes.

Ansupa Lake in Odisha was a wasteland three years ago and of no use to the fishing community living in the vicinity. There was a decline in the fish and birds population in the lake.

It took some efforts from the authorities, the community and a mechanical weeder, to turn the tide.

The Chilika Development Authority (CDA) took charge of restoring the lake. With the help of the aquatic weed harvester, the condition of the lake has now improved. People living around the lake, Odisha's largest natural freshwater lake, are a lot happier now that their lifeline is restored.

The Ansupa Integrated Self Help Group, formed by the CDA, manages lake activities. Fishing is regulated and income from tourism goes back to the community.

After restoration, the once-dying lake had over 60 bird species including 30 migratory species visiting it.
