Anamalai Rainforest Restoration Program

Anamalai Nature Information Centre, ANIC

This is a small restoration plot of 2 ha area located near the Anamalai Nature Information Centre at Iyerpadi. The site was quite degraded, containing only weeds and some Erythrina trees prior to restoration work. It adjoins a Eucalyptus plantation and a patch of less-disturbed rainforest and offers visitors to the Centre an opportunity to see native rainforest tree saplings coming up in a degraded site.
