Surajpur is an excellent example of an urban wetland in Yamuna River basin and forms suitable breeding ground for waterfowl such as Spot-billed Duck, Lesser-whistling Duck, Cotton Pygmy Goose and Comb Duck and wintering waterfowl such as Red-crested Pochard, Ferruginous Pochard, Bar-headed Goose, Greylag Goose, Common Teal, Northern Shoveler and Gadwall.
Uttar Pradesh Forest Department in collaboration with WWF- India and supported by the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority, is implementing a project on the conservation planning and development of Surajpur wetland since 2010 and collectively making efforts to restore the bleak area into a lively bird sanctuary. The wetland sets a unique example of protection and conservation of biodiversity close to urban areas.
