How much do we know about the life around us? When we think of life we imagine all the hustle bustle of city life, but hardly do we think of the other forms of life that are with us on this earth. They make our earth beautiful along with the company they give us. They maintain the natural cycles that give us water, air and life. Should we just see them get poached and vanish from the face of the earth?

Should we allow their natural habitats to be destroyed? We all can help them survive in an ever-changing world, we can keep this earth beautiful with their presence. Come, let's help them live in whatever ways that each one of us is capable of.

So go ahead and make an effort for the survival of the life that shares our planet with us....

Operating in South India, with a high diversity of fauna in the surrounding forests, we do our best to protect wild species in their natural habitats and to let the eyes of our coming generation see the beauty of these graceful animals.
