About the organization

 

In 1992, few passionate people started Sahyadri Nisarga Mitra (SNM) with a simple concept of bird watching. With time it evolved into an organization that started engaging communities for nature conservation. SNM's core objective is - to conserve biodiversity, with sustainability, through community engagement and government collaboration. The organization came into being from simple beginnings of a bird observation hobby and general research on birds and their habitats, threats, and conservation methods. With the years of evolution and a single guiding vision has now led SNM to focus on the conservation of endangered species through community engagement and conducting related research. SNM has achieved many feathers in its cap for effectively protecting and preserving the rich local biodiversity as well as blossoming the lives of many. 

The organization has successfully established a number of conservation initiatives across the Konkan region stretching over 720 km of the west coast of Indian Land. Being enthusiastic and innovative the building block of the organization is a tiny little principle as “Nature conservation through livelihood generation”, which has anchored all the activities in the Konkan region.
