Who We Are?

Western Ghats Hornbill Foundation has been working with government departments, civil society groups and local communities for conservation and inclusive management of species and ecosystems ensuring sustainable livelihood. We have been focussing more on species habitat and ecosystem modelling for conservation and ecorestoration for the last few years. This include various ecosystems across the Western Ghats and its western coast including some pioneering works or riparian forest ecosystems.

What We Do?

We collaborate with local bodies, institutions, CBOs and individuals to spread the messages of ecorestoration next year. Out flagship program is to promote the message of ecorestoration through spreading the necessity of “Local Genepool in Local Nurseries for Ecosystem Restoration and Climate Resilience” which is scheduled from 5 th -11 th June 2022. Any individual, institution, NGO, CBO, Departments and Local bodies can register and participate in the event.
