Biodiversity Parks, Delhi


It is now well understood that the last century has seen unprecedented loss of ecosystems that flourished on the banks of river Yamuna, the siwalik foothills, and the northern limits of the Aravallis. This has occurred primarily owing to habitat conversion and urbanization. The unique habitats in these areas harboured extraordinary diversity of flora and fauna, which are now either lost or highly diminished. One of the major objectives of the Biodiversity Parks is to create refugia for such biodiversity so that is can be conserved for posterity.

In a short span of four years, the dedicated team of professional and volunteers at the Park have been able to bring back a large number of plants and animals and recreate representative communities and ecosystems.
