Our work in Ecology involves protection & management of degraded ecosystems with the village communities who are largely dependent on these ecosystems for their survival. It is with a view to reestablish people’s relationship with nature; more importantly, to take responsibility of and control over what are their natural resources.

Towards this, we have consistently promoted the concept of eco-restoration through (a) protection of village commons and the vast tracts of wastelands through natural regeneration (b) water conservation through restoration of traditional rainwater harvesting structures and the more modern watershed development and (c) organic farming practices to rejuvenate and revitalize the land.
