Biodiversity Reporting Programme for School Teachers

Kerala is a fertile land with its very rare species of animals and creatures and herbal plants and grains and it is one of the places for it prominence of biodiversity. The unscientific developmental methods and deforestation affect greatly the biological assets of our country. Moreover, the biodiversity around us is largely destructed due to natural disasters. The onslaughts of it not only affect the human beings but also the biodiversity and ecosystem directly as well as indirectly. 

The healthy ecosystem would survive the natural disasters. Likewise, it enables the existence and livelihood of human beings along with this. Rehabilitation of such changing ecosystem, its protection and misuse etc have to be done by the coming generation. It is the duty of the students to take over the responsibility of the activities for the protection of biodiversity along with their studies. 

Here the role of the teachers is significant to make them active participants. Even though the environmental destruction is happening due to unscientific developmental activities in one side, the rehabilitation of environment friendly ecosystem and safety models of biodiversity (natural and man made) regionally are still prevalent in villages and other places. 

Similarly, we are the beneficiaries of this. But we never try to learn or understand or revive it.
