Biodiversity is very fragile in Nature. Unguided human activities are the major threat to it. For making the awareness for biodiversity, we target school children as they are the future of the nation and mankind. Childhood is the effective stage to inculcate the respect for the Nature. That's why, we participate school children in our green activities. We call school children at regular interval, arrange nature education, do plantation, and introduce them with plants at premise and their economic, medicinal and scientific value.
In our premise, we have conserved a rare variety of cow, vechoor cattle, which is world's smallest variety and worldwide its population is just 200 worldwide. By rearing this variety, we are just in-line with our commitment of Bio-diversity conservation. We also organize Tribal Song and Dance performance for our guest. As we think these things a precious resources which inspire us to be one with Nature.
