Restoration Ecology

We work towards the preservation and restoration of the indigenous Tropical Dry Evergreen Forests, degraded ecosystems and habitats of the environment by active human intervention and action.

Environment Education

The Pitchandikulam Bioresource Centre with its library, database, artefacts and photo displays, provides a focus for the teaching of restoration ecology, environmental science, and the identification and use of indigenous medicinal plants.

Community Outreach

We work with rural communities helping empower them towards self-sustainability. Currently we work in the Kaluveli bioregion through education, rural enterprises, reforestation, health and awareness programs.

Nature Art

Our experiments on wildlife art at Pitchandikulam aim for naturalism and exactitude. The art is part of our holistic conservation strategy and works to increase sensitisation towards the natural world.

Pitchandikulam Forest

Pitchandikulam Forest was established in 1973 as a pioneering green belt community in Auroville, working to bring back the indigenous forest to the badly-eroded township site.

We work throughout the Auroville bio-region in helping people to plant trees, use plants for healing and understand how the forest can boost the local economy.

Auroville is an experimental township in Tamil Nadu, South India that seeks to realise human unity, where all men and women can live in peace and harmony, beyond divisions of creed, politics and nationality.
