We have been working to undo the great damage done to the fragile Himalayan ecosystem by large scale deforestation, forestation with monoculture plantation, construction of roads, blasting of geological structures, construction of settlements in prime agricultural land, extension of agriculture to marginal lands, quarrying, overgrazing and other unscientific and thoughtless changes in landuse. We have worked to restore the capacity of land to absorb and hold water, increase ground water recharge, restore vegetation cover, arrest rapid soil erosion and bring back some of the native tree species. Community awareness and responsibility for the surrounding forests and wilderness areas has been increased. We are grateful to our donors, volunteers and supporters and above all the wonderful village communities we worked with who helped set up models for demonstration and replication which are visited and inspire many who visit them each year.
