Environment

The Neeracherried is a natural habitat for countless animals and plants – it contains populations of national importance and has more than 450 documented plant species. But these native populations are being increasingly threatened by invasive plants that have been introduced to the region. Unless we take measures to protect them, newcomers like golden rod could completely overwhelm weaker native species like orchids.
It is not enough to regularly mow the reed meadows. The only way to preserve biodiversity effectively is by pulling out invasive plants by their roots.
