    This description of Suprabha Seshan's work was prepared when Suprabha Seshan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2005.
    Introduction
    As competition for the resources in the forests of the Western Ghats increases, and the stakes increase for the indigenous plant species and habitat to be lost, Suprapbha Seshan is addressing a key problem: The need to restore natural habitats through integrated conservation techniques, gardening, and restoration practice. She demonstrates the importance of nurturing the existing links between the health of plants and climate, survival of animal species, humans, land, and livelihoods. Her innovation creates a healthy alliance between people and their environment.
