The Eastern Himalayan Botanic Ark is the seed of all our operations, growing since the first saplings were planted in 2005. Formally launched in 2016, the Ark has radically transformed the landscape of the 22-acre campus it shares with our social initiative Wild Mahseer, restoring once decimated green cover.

Today, the Eastern Himalayan Botanic Ark is haven to a rich sampling of Eastern Himalayan biodiversity, serving as an ex-situ conservation centre and nursery for our afforestation programmes in Balipara Reserve Forest. It is also the heart of all our research operations, seeking to become a centre for research, experimentation, documentation and education of the natural biodiversity of the region, as well as the rich traditional knowledge of its communities, starting with the Mishing, Garo, Assamese and Nyishi communities.
