Nilgiris Ecology: Threats and Challenges

One Earth Foundation organized a trek with the students from Stonehill (Bangalore) in the fragile and protected region of Avalanche in The Nilgiris Biosphere Reserve. The objective was to highlight the critical role of native shola species (flora & fauna)  in conserving the fragile ecology of the area and the impact of invasive or exotic species on this region.  The group also visited a Toda mund along the way to understand the lives and role of tribes and indigenous communities in conservation.  As a symbolic gesture, our group planted a shola species tree –  Syzygium Cumini.
