The dry evergreen forests along the Coromandel coast of peninsular India occur as small patches of relatively dense forests and conserved on religious values and beliefs as ‘sacred groves’. In the tropics, sacred groves play a vital role in traditional biodiversity conservation. In the recent past, this ecosystem has been highly disturbed by various human activities, and is facing local population extinctions. We are creating the awareness programme about the sacred groves and its importance for biodiversity conservation for the local tribal people.
