CNS was started with an objective of Observe, Learn and appreciate nature. CNS has been conducting non-stop bird watching programs on every weekend since its inception (Sep 2012). Every Sunday, the members carpool and visit various bird watching hotspots located in the vicinity of Coimbatore city. The birds seen in these trips are meticulously noted down and reported to online platforms like eBird and being circulated within the group.
Apart from this, the members of Coimbatore nature society have conducted awareness sessions about birds and butterflies at various schools and colleges around Coimbatore. A Photography exhibition was conducted in Coimbatore Vizha 2015. They have released a checklist of Birds of Coimbatore in September 2015 comprising of about 321 species up to that point. Coimbatore Nature Society along with CII-Young Indians released the book ‘Birds of Coimbatore’, during 2016 Coimbatore Vizha celebrations, which contained photographs, information about birdlife in Coimbatore and other information which might be of use to birdwatchers in Coimbatore.
CNS is a regular participant of Asian Waterfowl Census (AWC) since 2013 onwards. Its members also have been regular participants in Coimbatore HSBC Bird Races since 2013. CNS has been communicating frequently to the press since its inception about various rare bird sightings in and around Coimbatore city.
On the special occasion to commemorate its sixth year and completing non-stop weekly Bird Watching trips, CNS has released an introductory booklet to the Birds of Coimbatore and has also released a quick reference leaflet (a handout) and a revised checklist to the Birds of Coimbatore Version 2.0.
