The area (about 10 sq.km) is primarily a fresh water zone connected by channels cut through the reed beds with the brakish water of Chilika lagoon. The numerous channels that crisscross through the greenery, harbour thousands of water birds, migratory and resident. This wetland hosts more than 3,00,000 of birds in the peak season. November to March is the best time to visit this place. This region has is a significant global waterfowl habitat and is declared as an “International Bird Area. Mangalajodi epitomizes a sustainable lifestyle that is at the brink of extinction. Mangalajodi village consists mainly of fishermen communities, who go fishing every evening to Chilika Lake and come back the next morning with fresh catch. Local communities still dwell on the indigenous methods of catching fish wherein country made fishing nets are made out of bamboo which do not pose a threat to aquatic life.
