Care Earth has drafted the Ecological Management Plans for the upcoming campuses of the Indian Institute of Technology in Tirupati, Palakkad, Dharwad and Jammu, outlining a set of processes and practices to meet the institute’s objectives of sustainable growth. Field assessments comprising of all out search, transects and sample plot surveys were done to assess the habitat and its constituent species; a set of flora/fauna were identified as bio-indicators of the campus. Geo-spatial analyses of the habitat for various parameters such as ecological zonation, human habitation and hydrology were carried out as part of the project as well.
