ABOUT WEBINAR

Sacred Groves are forest fragments of varying sizes, which are commonly protected, and which usually have a significant religious connotation for protecting community.  In modern times, Sacred Groves have become Biodiversity Hotspots, as various species seek refuge in the areas due to progressive habitat destruction.  Sacred Groves often contain plant and animal species that have become extinct in neighboring areas.  They therefore harbor great genetic diversity.  Besides this, Sacred Groves in urban landscapes act as “lungs” to the city as well, providing much needed vegetation cover.

Hence, let us all work hand in hand to conserve this ecosystem.
