Sacred Grove Conservation

Since August 2013, the Bhoomithrasena Club of Sir Syed College has been deeply engaged in the preservation of sacred groves within Kannur district. This noble endeavor, which began in 2013 and endures to this day, has seen remarkable achievements. Notably, we have meticulously rejuvenated the mangrove-rich sacred grove of Thazhekavu in Kannur. As a testament to our commitment, we have erected a biodiverse fence around Irivery Kavu. Furthermore, we have painstakingly documented the diverse flora of Kayyath Nagam in Taliparamba. The Sacred Grove Conservation Project stands as a shining example of our dedication to this cause, made possible through the unwavering support of OISCA International and the State Medicinal Plants Board. Within this initiative, our members have actively taken part in planting medicinal herbs and have conducted enlightening awareness programs. Our green thumbs have flourished, with extensive planting endeavors carried out at Irivery and Kayyath Nagam. In addition to nurturing the land, we have undertaken the removal of waste materials from the pristine Thazhekavu island and encircled it with a protective net fence. All of these initiatives are marked by active engagement and collaboration with the local community, highlighting the power of collective action in safeguarding our sacred natural heritage. Doctoral theses are granted based on in-depth sacred grove studies at the college, and the institution has also been prolific in producing a multitude of research publications. This reflects the college's dedication to advancing knowledge and fostering a deep understanding of sacred grove ecosystems. These academic accomplishments play a pivotal role in the conservation and sustainable management of Sacred Grove environments.
