Biodiversity Conservation of Sasthamcotta Fresh Water lake

Manovikas launched the participatory biodiversity conservation project, with the support of Kerala Forest Department, to preserve the largest fresh water lake of the state, which gives drinking water to over 5 lakhs people daily. Fifty Green Groups are formed around the lake to protect this.
Through the workshops held, we formulated the aims and objectives. The key stake holders have been identified and an area map and history of the lake prepared.
