For the general public, wildlife conservation is synonymous with the conservation of megafauna. The threatened floral species fighting for survival around us are barely spared a moment’s thought. We believe that the first step towards broadening the scope of nature conservation to include plant conservation is increasing public awareness.
This December Aranyakam Nature Foundation along with Peechi Wildlife Division brings to you a hands-on workshop to fine-tune your plant identification skills. The workshop will include interactive sessions with experts in the field, an opportunity to explore the KFRI arboretum, palmetum, and medicinal plant garden as well as a field trip into the Peechi-Vazhani Wildlife Sanctuary.
You will also be able to interact informally with the resource personnel and learn directly from their experiences. Ultimately you will learn how to take your knowledge to the community and increase public awareness and engagement in nature conservation.
