Bird watchers and environmentalists have urged the government to declare as wetlands a large stretch of marshland in Sector 16 and Sector 17 under the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA).

Anand Arya, a birdwatcher, has written to the ministry of environment and wildlife as well as the state government, urging them to notify this stretch of land, which is roughly 20 hectares, under Central Wetland Protection Act so as to save animals and birds in that area.
