An Indian village lived in darkness for over 35 days to help a bird

A village in Tamil Nadu, India, opted to stay without electricity or street lights for over 35 days to save a bird life and its family. The residents of Pothakudi decided to turn off power so as to save the endangered bird, the Indian Robin, as it has hatched its eggs on the village’s main switchboard. Nearly 100 families lived without electricity to allow the eggs hatch and let the birds grow.

Awww ❤️ I feel like moving the nest would have been easier, but maybe that wasn't an option for some reason. regardless, cudoes to them for putting innocent lives before comfort.

Incredible that an entire community was able to achieve this together without some outlier messing it up for their own gain.
