Nature's Education

You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of your grandfathers. So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon the themselves. - Native Wisdom

We may assist your group (school, university, society, corporate, etc.) in their quest for more knowledge on nature, marine biodiversity and environment.

Learn about the species of crabs, worms, mollusks and crustaceans that call this zone home. You'll also discover their amazing adaptations to their harsh environment - where their very survival is threatened alternately by parching and flooding, oxygen and salt.

Education of Children and young on Benefits of conservation.

We think that it's vital for children and young to comprehend the significance of their natural environment, to preserve the biodiversity, to understand and respect the eco system for the benefit of our mother Earth, to save the planet and the future generation.

We are supporting "green schools" and organize them to become self reliant on renewable energy consumption, water conservation trough rain water harvesting, organic farming through kitchen garden. We are giving training to the children to organize them as "green warriors", to be able to build environment awareness among their own community.

Global Warming

Burning fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal, oil and gasoline raises the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and carbon dioxide is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect and global warming.

So in our Eco centre we are trying constantly to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels, which in turn reduces global warming, by using renewable energy more wisely. Following are the 10 simple actions we are doing to ensure that we do not add up to the global problem but also offset the carbon.

  1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
  2. Use Less Heat and Air Conditioning
  3. Change a Light Bulb
  4. Drive Less and Drive Smart
  5. Buy Energy-Efficient Products
  6. Use Less Hot Water
  7. Use the "Off" Switch
  8. Plant a Tree
  9. Use Biogas and solar energy
  10. Encourage Others to Conserve
