However, several flocks of migratory bird perched in urban area, some consider their presence as a wonderful phenomenon, but others may find it as a nuisance and try to harm or exterminate them, which is a common occurrence in developing countries such as China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and many other. If this ignorance still going on, it means a threat toward 80% pollinator and seed disperser around the world. The word Exodus is a concept of moving misguided migratory birds in urban areas to designated nature preserve located in the south shore of Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta. This project ‘embrace’ nature as an education and recreation center while also utilizing biogas from organic waste to be converted into electric resource, and making brackish water purifier to supply local water demand.
