video

        AS  part of a project on biodiversity by the NSS unit,33 higher secondary students of this school selected to study biodiversity went on a field trip to the nearby Akkokavu ( Sacred Grove) under the guidance of two asst professors BIJU.P from Govt.college,Kasargod and JOSEKUTTY.E.J from Govt.Brennen college,Thalassery.The local expert Sajeevan Kamballur and the LSG Chairman Janardanan escorted the team.Principal Mathew K.D.;Kishore Master;Baiju,K P and programme officer Radhakrishnan C.K were also present.

The students have collected data from the school campus and the near by grove so as to prepare a BIODIVERSITY REGISTER.of KAMBALLUR.The work lasted for more than 5 hours from 9AM- 2.30.PM on Saturday; 6/10/2012.The students were divided into 3 sections so as to focus on  three important areas of the study,namely-thannerthadangal(water bodies);flaura and fauna;herbs,butterflies and other moths & birds.
The students have identified more than 150 species of plants  and trees in the school campus and the kavu.;136 kinds of herbs;varieties of butterflies and moths.A few of them are found endemic.


Biju master  pointed out that the ancient kavu should be  protected as it contains valuable herbs like ATLANTIA MONOPHYLLA(kattunarakam) and orchid





plants. Anti social elements have been throwing waste in the kavu recently.CLEANING THE KAVU MUST BE THE NEXT STEP.
