ECHIS CONSERVATION HUB
Conception of ECHIS:
I have envisaged the Echis Conservation Hub as a means of creating a platform for students, nature enthusiasts and wild life researchers in a semi urban landscape. The Echis Conservation Hub is located in Nachinola village, a quiet hamlet situated in the heart of Bardez taluka 10 kilometres away from capital city of Panjim and 5 kilometers from Mapusa city in Goa.
Among our many objectives, the most important one is to set up a permanent conservation research base and nature reference and reading library that can be used by researchers and students.
Even though I will lead activities here, this is essentially your base and together we must aim to put into place-
3 different habitats for young students to study
a) Pond ecosystem.
b) Stony laterite ecosystem.
c) Mixed moist forest ecosystem.
A self sustained vegetable patch and fruit trees plot.
A small holding facility for injured and rescued urban wildlife.
An Art Gallery that will house artefacts, art and images inspired by nature that will sustain the space.
hope to see you all here soon.
