Event Summary:

Western Ghats Hornbill Foundation have been working on documenting and developing ecological solutions for status assessment, monitoring and ecorestoration of species and ecosystems in the Kerala part of Western Ghats region in South India. This includes studies on riparian forests, endangered trees, hornbills and their habitat, tropical rainforests, sacred groves and coastal ecosystems. We have developed standardised tools for ecorestoration planning using bioclimatic species and ecosystem distribution predication models and niche profiling of compositions for the region. Few have been published, added to the policy and management plan document of PAs and Biodiversity Management plans of local Self-governments. Regional nurseries and community especially women involved ecosystem restoration.
