Biodiversity Conservation

Biodiversity refers to the variety of plant, animal and microbial life, their genes and the ecosystem of which they are a part. India is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. It is home to millions of plants and animal species, many of which are found no where else.

Raising biodiversity awareness and promoting conservation action are at the forefront of initiatives taken up by CPREEC.
