Ecological Restoration of Sundarbans Landscape
The super cyclone has devastated the life in Sundarban as in several places the saline water entered the village and also people are left with no food and shelter. Nature Mates together with the support of Hoffman Family Foundation started the year long Sundarban Post Amphan Restoration Project from September 2020.
The different activities planned under this project are:
1. Erosion Mapping
2. Water and Soil Assessment
3. Pond water quality assessment for aquaculture and household use
4. Paddy cultivation assessment and restoration
5. Fruit Tree and mangrove Plantation
6. Vegetable gardening
7. Ecological awareness
