The Shapoorji Pallonji Native Biodiversity Garden is an earnest attempt to conserve nature, attract native species of flora and fauna back into our ecosystems. Most importantly, it serves as a Learning Resource Centre for students, teachers, parents and visitors of all ages.
Spread over 1.25 acres of land at the edge of Teenvira Dam, this garden showcases the beauty and wonder of native plant species. These plants form a vital component of our ecosystems by providing a food source and habitats for insects, birds, amphibians and mammals.
The project commenced in April 2015 and in a brief span of 9 months, a barren plot of land was converted into a lush green garden with the plantation of over 45,000 saplings across 500+ native species. This film documents the transformation.
