Ecorestoration of Bodi North Hills, Tamil Nadu

SCMS Group is preparing a ‘Field Research Station’ at Bodi North Hills, near Bodinakkannur, Tamil Nadu. This is a private land with an extent of around 100 acres and owned by Gaia Environmental Conservancy, Pvt Ltd. This was dry evergreen forest once but got degraded heavily due to massive felling of trees during the British period and used for the world war. SCMS Group is now trying to husband and nurse back to health the life supporting systems of this degraded land; primarily soil, water and biomass. SCMS Water Institute which is leading the team, is carrying out various ecorestoration initiatives in this land. A weather station developed by Department of Electronics and communication Engineering of SSET, has been established in this land for weather data collection.
