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.
