S.Panimaya Mercy


The forest department has started eco-tourism activities in two spots in Kanyakumari district under the Tamil Nadu Bio-diversity and Greening Project (TNBGP). Under the project, Kalikesam, 30km from Nagercoil, and Zero Point at Pechiparai, 36km from Nagercoil, were identified for eco-tourism activities. The Tamil Nadu forest department through this model tries to conserve the natural environment as well as improve the livelihood of kani settlers. The earnings derived from these eco-tourism activities will be used for camp maintenance, conservation of eco-system and for tribal community development.
