Eco-restoration of Thazhambur Wetland

"Very often we find that passion determines eco-restoration programmes, but what is also important is the science of it" (1/n)

With support from Hinduja Foundation, we embarked on a project to restore and conserve the Thazhambur #wetland and foster responsible use and management of #water resources by local communities on the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle (2/n)
Eco-restoration efforts has resulted in the total recovery and restoration of 30.6 ha of water spread area, consolidation of 1.2 km of the tank bund and increasing wetland holding capacity by 5.3 million c ft of water over 16.46 million c ft existing capacity.

Further, the Living Lab at Thazhambur seeks to introduce the science behind eco-restoration to children and adults alike
