Amur Falcon massacre in India

It has come to my attention that 12-15,000 Amur Falcons PER DAY!!!, are trapped and killed on migration in Nagaland, India, for sale for consumption and for sale in local markets. Huge nets are strung across a valley to trap them.
Here's a PDF of images - click here
Also here's a web site with more detail - it's appalling - click here.
I have shared on FB and Twitter [asking for re-tweets] and also shared with the Avaaz internet petitioning organisation on their FB page.
