Anamalai Rainforest Restoration Program

Selaliparai 1

0.5 years after planting Site recovery over time

Our partnership with Tata Coffee Ltd began in 2006. We identified 15 rainforest fragments within their estates. Many of these are very important as habitat and corridors for movement of animals such as elephants and hornbills besides being refuges for endemics such as the lion-tailed macaque.

Among the sites selected for protection and restoration, in 2007, we carried out restoration weeding and planting in Selaliparai 1. This is a small, linear rainforest fragment of 2.1 ha. It has had invasion of weeds such as Lantana camara, Chromolaena odorata, and Mikania sp.
