Persistent Plantation for Preservation

National Conservation Foundation has been working towards identifying and protecting rainforest patches in the Western Ghats since 2001. NCF has partnered with many plantation companies operating in the Western Ghats,such as Tata Coffee Ltd, Parry Agro Industries Ltd and Tamil Nadu forest department and, with combined efforts, has protected more than 1075 hectares in 35 parts of the Western Ghats.

NCF has planted over 57,300 saplings of native rainforest plant species in the region of Anamalai hills to restore the forest cover, among which 61% of the saplings flourished naturally.
