NGCPR has recently taken up a challenging task of eco-restoration and forest regeneration study to develop a scientific model in a land of 125 hectares belonging to Forest Department at Palshi and Mirje villages of Satara district. The primary goal is to create a micro climate to raise ground water levels in the region. NGCPR’s teams will document biodiversity and identify wild life habitats for conservation. Simultaneously, NGCPR’s efforts in this direction would lead to prepare a forest manual that can be useful for Non-Government Organizations to replicate Afforestation activities. The uniqueness of this programme is that local, endemic species of plants have been planted instead of invasive foreign plant species. It is a collaborative project with Forest Department, Maharashtra, and Maharashtra Vrikshasanvardhini, NGO, Pune. Initiated in the year 2012, the Centre has planted around 1,29,924 trees till date.
