This conservation project involves restoring and protecting the high-altitude pine forests that serve as the habitat for these birds. This entails implementing sustainable water management practices, researching the awareness among local communities and tourists about the
importance of these endemic birds and promoting responsible feeding.

Tessina holds a Bachelor’s degree in Multimedia Production and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in media conception. She has been actively involved in various environmental and social initiatives such as “Greenpeace Youth” and has engaged in a range of projects, promoting campaigns to reduce plastic waste and advocating for conscious consumption. Tessina will use her knowledge of the natural world to study the behavior, distribution, and response of these birds to our conservation strategies so that we can adapt our efforts to be more effective.
