Since 1981 the Gurukula Botanical Sanctuary has been quietly working on “gardening back the biosphere”, a unique approach to plant conservation and habitat restoration for rainforest areas. GBS’s vision and practice combat species erosion and habitat degradation through ecosystem gardening and forest-based community education for people from every part of society.
As extractive pressures on wild species increase and the slew of anthropogenic pressures mounts, the collapse of ecosystem function and structure looms up with frightening pace. It is clear to scientists and environmentalists alike, that the single action to combat climate change other than stopping forest loss and reducing emissions through deforestation is the resurgence of natural habitat with a full complement of native species.
