Care Earth Trust was involved in the process for preparing a proposal to enable the certification of the Pallikaranai marsh as a Ramsar site. This included structured and open discussions with the senior officials of the Tamilnadu Forest Department to enable an in depth understanding of data sources, data availability, and past, current and future plans of management. Data sources, reports and maps of the Forest Department were thoroughly studied in addition to incorporating inputs from published as well as unpublished sources of information. Boundaries were delineated to identify the candidate site and site visits were carried out to verify on ground.
