Plastic accumulating in our oceans and on our beaches has become a global crisis. Billions of pounds of plastic can be found in swirling convergences that make up about 40 per cent of the world's ocean surfaces. At current rates plastic is expected to outweigh all the fish in the sea by 2050.

Uttara Kannada district has lost 3,383 sq. km of dense forest cover in the last 37 years. This is more than one-third of the total area of the district (10,280 sq. km). The loss of forest cover has adversely impacted mangroves and estuarine fisheries.

 

A study by the Energy and Wetlands Research Group, Centre for Ecological Sciences, Indian Institute of Sciences, on the ‘Ecological carrying capacity of Uttara Kannada district’ has revealed that mega development projects such as hydel power plants, Project Seabird, Kaiga nuclear power plant and Konkan railway accounted for the loss of 26,186 hectares (ha) of forest, and 5,508 ha of forest was cleared for rehabilitating families displaced by the projects. We don't Aim to land on stars but aim to reach closest with our full potential. Hence, we are committed to investing our major time and funds towards conservation of nature. 

 

 

The continuous release of freshwater used for power generation in the hydroelectric project has reduced salinity in the Sharavati and Kali estuaries, the study said.

 

While most high salinity tolerant mangroves vanished, the growth of medium salinity tolerant mangroves declined. Only 43 species of fish were found in the Sharavati estuary, while estuary of the Aghanashini, which does not have any power projects, had nearly 90 species of fish. The Kali estuary had 58 fish species. Our efforts are towards the management of excess and redistributing the surplus ethically and bring it to it's duties. We are open to Skills, Funds and Proposals required to carry forward and execute the water management projects towards the ethical needs and welfare of the region.
